Korean Barbeque Restaurant Coming to Stony Brook

The Brookhaven Town Board approved a special permit to re-assign a retail shop as Ssambap Korean BBQ.

A motion to grant a special permit to open a Korean restaurant at 2350 Nesconset Highway in Stony Brook was passed unanimously at the Brookhaven Town Hall meeting on Aug. 8.

Misook Kim put forth the special permit application to change the building use from a retail shop to Ssambap Korean BBQ. The restaurant will occupy space between and .

“I’d been wanting to open a Korean restaurant to share the culture and the food,” Kim said. “This opportunity came along and we jumped on it.”

According to town documents, renovations will be made to the surrounding area as per the request of the Brookhaven Town Planning Board. Among the board’s recommendations are curb reparations, a separated enclosing for dumpsters, and outlined handicap accessible parking spaces.   

Kim and her husband were the former owners of The Grateful Deli in Southold, and recently sold the business to start the restaurant.   

Kim said the restaurant will include special features such as allowing customers to cook their own marinated meats at the table, and will be open in October.

“It’s a new building and new shopping center, and most of the tenants are first generation,” she said. “The word ‘ssambap’ is a dish meaning rice and beef wrapped with lettuce.”

The restaurant will seat 64 people and will be 3,160 square feet in size. Details regarding its structure, outer appearance, and land development plans are available via the Brookhaven Town Planning Board.
