Popular OKC Restaurant "CHAE: Modern Korea" Closing Its Doors

Posted: Updated:

One of Oklahoma City's most popular Asian cuisine restaurants will close its doors this weekend. 

CHAE: Modern Korea will close its doors Saturday, April 28. Despite its popularity, the restaurant owner Daniel Chae said he is "stretched thin." Chae also owns other popular restaurants including UR/BUN and All About Cha in northwest Oklahoma City. 

"One full-service restaurant demands a whole lot more than two half-service restaurants. And it’s why I’m shifting focus and resources to my half-service, fast-casual concepts," Chae said.

CHAE’s small plates and a few other strong items are going to UR/BUN. CHAE’s brunch is going to All About Cha. 

The restaurant is the recipient of several awards, including 405 Magazine's Best Asian Restaurant and 5th in Yelp's Top Ten OKC Restaurants.
