Pine Tree Korean Rises From The Ashes in Northridge

Northridge has a considerable collection of Korean barbecue spots, a population that took a hit in 2011 when someone left the SFV neighborhood’s Pine Tree Korean barbecue on the grill too long, burning the restaurant to a crisp (note: not the fire department’s official version of events). The barbecue joint sat there stewing in spray paint for a while, but officially reopened its doors last Tuesday, bringing back the popular all-you-can-eat options in an area that hardly rivals KTown, but might still be your best fix left of the 405.
