Each week in our Chefs Off Duty series, we talk to some of our favorite chefs and industry folk around the country to find out their secret late-night spots where they like to grab a bite and a pint when their kitchens are finally closed. Next up: Shaun Hergatt, chef/owner of Juni.

Where's your favorite place to grab a bite when you're leaving your own restaurant?

Don's Bogam on 32nd St.

How did you discover this place?

It was introduced to me by a good Korean friend of mine. I've been going here for 5 years and it's a great places for Korean BBQ right in the heart of Korea Town. I see and meet tons of well-known chefs here and people you'd never guess. It's a very humble restaurant with a non-pretentious scene.
