Funk Seoul Brother, a food truck concept created by B.J. Lofback in 2011 as Riffs Fine Street Food and rebranded to Funk Seoul Brother last year, is opening a brick-and-mortar location in Midtown on Sunday, August 7, 2016 at 11am. The cuisine blends Korean and Japanese flavors in menu items like sushi burritos, bi bim bap, Korean BBQ tacos, and poke bowls. Funk Seoul Brother took over the space previously occupied by GoGo Sushi on Scarritt Place across from San Antonio Taco Company. Nashville Guru got a look inside.
The design, lead by Kate Mills, is intentionally funky and atypical for Nashville, with a bright pink community table, fresh light fixtures, and a wall of photo-centric art. The recognizable “D” in the center of the wall pays homage to Lofback’s hometown of Detroit. There are about 45 seats in the 1,200-square-foot room.
Funk Seoul Brother’s menu is a combination of Korean and Japanese street food. Entrees include options like Korean BBQ tacos, Korean rice bowls, and sushi burritos. See the menu.
