Looking for good Korean bbq in CT or NY

Thanks! I can't wait to try everyone's suggestions.

Looking for best Korean bbq in NY or CT

I had my first and only experience with Korean bbq at a small hole-in-the-wall in California. I have never forgotten it. The food, the flavors - AMAZING!!!! This was the kind of restaurant with the charcoal pit built into the table. That's what I'm looking for. Any recommendations?

What was the worst food you HAD to eat as a kid?

Fish sticks. All stick; no fish. Also, the frozen pizza with the tiny pepperoni cubes and the rock hard crust. Very sad when I saw that coming to the table.

Canned asparagus? My mom made me eat it once, but never again. I gag at the memory.

If you could choose a chef to cook a holiday meal...

Bobby Flay for flavor and spice
Tyler Florence for his take on classic dishes
Paula Deen because she's not afraid of butter. Also, it's like having grandma in the kitchen.

Family foods I thought was normal

I made tuna salad w/egg (the way my father still makes it) and my co-workers were aghast. Even my boss was turned off by it. Outside of my father's tuna salad, I've never had it with hard-boiled eggs.

Eating crackers with spaghetti and meat sauce. Also, sprinking salt on watermelon before eating it. Oh, and putting chopped, hard-boiled eggs in tuna salad.

Food Scars - Things you will never eat again.

Canned asparagus. Just the memory turns my stomach. My mother gave it to me as a child and I would not eat any form of asparagus until I was in my 30s. I finally gave in to my sister who pressured me to try fresh, steamed asparagus with a little butter and lemon. I tasted it and immediately called my mother and asked her what she was thinking when she tried to feed us that mushy, nasty mess in a can.

Good Pho

Please, please, PLEASE tell me there's a good pho place in or around New Haven. My sister turned me on to it and I just love the combination of flavors. Willing go to 20 miles in any direction.
