A Liquor Store, LA Artwork, and a ’70s Chef’s Table Fill Roy Choi’s Best Friend

Plus murals, a deejay booth, and more

All things Los Angeles find a home in Roy Choi’s new restaurant Best Friend, the Korean barbecue with LA roots at the Park MGM.

Diners walk into a liquor storefront with bar stools for grabbing quick bites or picking up swag. Customers then head into the main dining room through a pink plastic freezer door to find a bar to the right. The dining room in bright colors almost vibrates with its rainbow hues. Plants hang from the ceiling, and a mural from Los Angeles artist Phung Huynh adorns one wall. A deejay booth spotlighting LA artists takes over one wall.

Customers can request the private dining room or try to get the kitschy chef’s table in the kitchen.

Already, Best Friend kicked off Record Shop Thursdays with top local and Los Angeles DJs as they spin an eclectic mix of vinyl records during dinner service from 8 p.m. to midnight.
