Cuisine Chinese

Between $25 and $50

On the outside, Café China is devoid of pomp, displaying an artless façade with wood-framed doors and red calligraphy. Inside, this is a high-minded dining home to some of New York's most elusive celebrity residents (if only at dinner). The décor reflects the bygone but glorious 1930s Shanghai, with thoughtful touches like dramatic sea green walls, high ceilings, and brass chandeliers. A marble-and-walnut bar, brilliant red seats, and portable typewriters set the highly stylized Sichuan scene. It should be no surprise that the cooking here sets an equally high bar of fragrant, complex, and utterly irresistible dishes. Sample three-pepper chicken with meat so tender, skin so crispy, and peppers so fiery, that diners have been known to swoon. Sliced beef tendon arrives in a spicy chili sauce that brings mind-numbing heat; and butternut squash peppered with ginger is wholly luscious. Every taste and texture in the tea-smoked duck with hoisin is just as it should be; while tender fish fillets with pickled cabbage and greens, dried red chilies, and peppercorns is its own intense feast. Even the desserts exceed expectations as in piping-hot and panko-crusted fried sweet potato pancakes.

      Pros

      Une grande diversité, et une très bonne qualité des plats. Fin, raffiné, mais servi toujours dans un style convivial – à partager au milieu de la table. Il y a intérêt à venir nombreux, pour gouter aux différents plats. Ambiance intime, service impeccable. Nous avons prix tous les plats recommandé par le guide.

      Pros

      Big choice and very high level refined kitchen, served in a convivial style – to share in the middle of the table. It’s interesting to come with friends – to try as much dishes as possible. Intimate atmosphere, attentive service. We took all dishes recommended by the guide.
