Expanding its "healthy Korean barbecue" empire, Bibigo, with seven locations in Korea and now two in the U.S. is opening Monday, April 2, on South Beverly Drive, replacing Mako. A more upscale version of its Westwood location, Bibigo Beverly Hills is welcoming friends, family and the media to sample its expanded menu offerings.

The main draw of this order at the counter-style eatery will still be its hot-stone bibimbap, with fixings such as shrimp, chicken, beef, spicy pork, black pearl rice, an assortment of sauces, tofu, gobo and kimchi. Additional items include dessert (tofu pudding and hodduck with vanilla ice cream) as well as an extended alcoholic-beverage menu. "Prices are a bit higher at this location," says project manager Matthew Kim. Bibigo's next location will be in the Century City food court in July, he adds, giving the chain three types of venues -- upscale, casual and "quick service/fast casual."
