Seoul Food

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Last night, AVENUEinsider headed to Spice Market for the launch party for PBS’s new series, Kimchi Chronicles. The show follows renowned chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten and his stunning, half-Korean wife, Marja, as they travel Korea sampling its cuisine and soaking up the culture.

We walked in behind Brittny Gastineau and Jill Zarin (an odd pair, right?!) and immediately were taken by a glowing Heather Graham in head-to-toe Donna Karan. The leggy blonde couldn’t be more adorable. With boyfriend Jason Silva by her side, she canoodled, posed for pictures with adoring fans and danced the night away.

While sampling sushi and sipping on a ginger cocktail, we spotted hunky Hugh Jackman with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness. Jackman and Graham make an appearance and we heard Graham just returned from Seoul promoting this upcoming series.

You can get your Korean kick when the show airs in July–or just head to the Meatpacking District for some seriously good eats at Spice Market.
