Our Story

Baekjeong, the Korean word for “butcher,” reflects our commitment to serve only the highest quality meats and offer a truly outstanding Korean cultural dining experience, showcasing the rich authentic flavors and the unique qualities of Korean barbecue.

Owned and operated by Kijung Hospitality Group, we opened the first US Baekjeong in Los Angeles in October 2012 and quickly expanded to 7 restaurants in California and New York, making us the #1 choice for Korean barbecue in North America.

From our innovative grill to our nationwide expansion, Baekjeong is widely recognized by leading food critics as the gold standard and industry leader in Korean barbecue.

Our mission is to deliver rich, traditional culinary flavors and the vibrant essence of Korean night markets through an authentic menu, upbeat atmosphere and a modern dining experience.
