Kosmo's Kerrytown Closes

Ashley location picks up lunch hours

by Sabine Bickford

From the January, 2019 issue

After nineteen years behind its small metal counter, Don "Kosmo" Kwon is ending the Kerrytown iteration of Kosmo's to devote more time to his newer and larger Ashley location, Kosmo's Bop Shop. "I'm essentially moving out to start opening at lunch" there, he says. The Kerrytown location will close on December 29, and starting January 7, the Bop Shop will offer lunch Tuesday through Saturday.

Kwon says trying to manage lunch in Kerrytown and dinner on the west side was "just too much for me to handle." He's sad to move on and grateful for the support he's received over the years, but he hopes many of his Kerrytown customers will follow him to Ashley. The two restaurants offer near-identical menus featuring bibimbap bowls and fried twigam. One major difference: the new location will not serve hamburgers. Kwon inherited the burgers when he bought the business. He says they were popular, especially among Community High students, but "I really don't wanna do burgers."     (end of article)
