Back in the fall, we told you about Kristalbelli, which plans to rock K-Town with the most upscale, smoke-free Korean barbecue the city has seen yet. Anyway, after some delays, the spot is set to bow March 8. Photos are in — and it looks glitzy and loungey, just as you’d expect. So if you love charcoal-grilled beef but hate slumming it on 32nd Street, this one’s for you.

It’s not cheap, but luckily, as mentioned, there’s lots of private dining space (read: great for corporate dinners). From March 8 to March 25, the restaurant will offer a “soft-opening special” prix fixe for $85. Check that out here, and see the full regular menu below.
