Chef Eunji Lee worked in the two Michelin-starred kitchen of Jungsik before opening her own gallery-like patisserie, Lysée, in 2022. The name is a play on the French musée, a sort of sweet museum with pastries sorted into different collections. Lee’s stunning cakes and confections blend the flavors and traditions of Korea, France, and New York - her signature Lysée combines toasted brown rice mousse with caramel, pecan sablé and praline, while the V.I.C. (Very Important Chocolate Cake) introduced chocolate cremeux and sponge cake to Timut pepper caramel and dark chocolate mousse.
