Cuisine Chinese

Between $25 and $50

An unassuming façade lost in midtown masks this beautiful restaurant, decorated with seductive portraits of 1930s Shanghai starlets, bright red chairs, lush bamboo planters, and a dominating marble-and-dark wood bar. The kitchen may be struggling with popularity, yet on each table find balanced and elegant expressions of Sichuan cuisine that can stand above most in the city—one that avoids the easy umami of monosodium glutamate and egg rolls for balanced, elegant expressions of this region's dishes. The almost overwhelming menu features dozens of cold and hot appetizers, noodles, entrées, and desserts. From refreshing julienned jellyfish and buoyant dan dan noodles tossed with chili oil and minced pork, to aromatic tea-smoked duck, the flavors here often bring complexity than straight heat and the presentations are more feminine than brute. But that's not to say the kitchen doesn't conduct a fiery affair—try the flash stir-fried crispy chicken spiced with potent red and green chili peppers; or the lip-tingling cumin lamb, an intense, wok-fried dish with Sichuan peppercorns and chili oil. It's a face-melting experience that is as technically authentic as it is devilishly delicious.

      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.
