South Beach's Drunken Dragon, which opened on Alton Road in mid-June, comes from the owners of the neighboring Foxhole Bar, with backing from some of the nightlife big shots behind Wall and LIV. The draw here is Korean barbecue, do-it-yourself cooking with a variety of raw marinated meats to grill at the table. Here, next to Domino's Pizza in an unassuming strip mall, blacked-out windows and a signless entrance create a secret vibe -- part of the calculated allure. Beyond the door lies a wait stretching 30 minutes past your reservation. Use this time to squeeze between women in stiletto heels and gaudy gold tights and order floral-scented cocktails that are strained into ivory-hued skull mugs. When you're finally seated, order any number of Asian-influenced tapas, like twice-fried chicken with miso ranch dressing or steamed clamshell buns filled with torn duck confit and a square of crisp chicken skin.
