Char Korean Bar & Grill owner chef Richard Tang and chef Mike Yang (formerly Ba Bellies) open their seafood restaurant Girl Diver later this year at Madison Yards in Reynoldstown, and the menu features seafood by-the-pound and crawfish and crab boils.
In addition to platters and boils filled with snow and Alaskan king crab, jumbo tiger shrimp, and piles of crawfish, Girl Diver’s menu also includes lighter seafood fare like grilled octopus served with confit baby potatoes and Creole shrimp with smoked tomato jam. Tang says to expect various combination seafood platters, too.
On the turf side of the menu, there’s a meat and potato plate: Wagyu skirt steak topped with Thai-style chimichurri, served with a side of roasted potatoes.
The name Girl Diver refers, in part, to the nearly 2,000-year-old tradition of Japanese and Korean women divers or ama and haenyeo — “sea woman” — who collect pearls, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, and abalone from the bottom of the ocean. They dive without the use of scuba gear and tanks.
Girl Diver also pays tribute in its design to the work “The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife” by Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai.
