JYP to Open Upscale Korean Restaurant in New York


JYP Entertainment’s CEO, Park Jin Young, has just announced that he is opening an upscale Korean restaurant in Manhattan, New York.

Called “Kristalbelli,” it is coined as the next hot Korean restaurant. Park Jin Young created the menu in collaboration with renowned Korean American chef David Shim. David Shim is a chef from the French restaurant, “L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon,” located at the Manhattan Four Seasons Hotel. “Kristalbelli” will also incorporate JYP’s personally-developed unique barbecue grill.

JYP also plans to make this restaurant a hotspot for various figures in the entertainment industry. He has invited investor Horace Madison. Horace Madison is Lil’ Wayne’s business manager who also handles popular artists such as Drake and Nicki Minaj.

“Kristalbelli” is set to open in December of this year. From there, the restaurant will be expanding to six different entertainment hotspots – New York, Los Angeles, Beijing, Tokyo and Seoul. JYP released a teaser video on JYP Entertainment’s official YouTube channel.
