Katie Rue on opening a Korean-American cocktail bar
Katie Rue is the owner of Reception Bar - a self-proclaimed Korean-American bar in the Lower East Side. The cocktails feature not only Asian ingredients, but traditional combinations of ingredients found in Korean healing elixirs; the pink of the booths and glowy lighting, meanwhile, feel very '80s Miami. She’s here to talk with me about what it means to feel neither Korean, nor American, nor entirely Korean-Americans… and what unique, creative things arise from that tension of identity.
