|Top NYC Restaurants for the month of December 2018 |
Mr. Chow Cuisine: Chinese
324 E. 57th Street (b/w 1st & 2nd Avenues) | New York, NY 10022
Set amidst black and white abstract artwork in an art deco d�cor, there is nothing characteristically �Chinese restaurant� about this high glam space. Mr. Chow�s menu is unsurpassed by its competitors, the dishes are innovative & fabulous, & an extensive wine list compliments the excellent menu. The service is efficient, edging on snooty, but the food more than makes up for the less-than-jovial wait staff. There is a bar overlooking the sunken dining room, exclusively for patrons of the restaurant. Dining at Chow�s is �strictly about the menu, it�s that good.� Mr. Chow has a private room that can accommodate up to 30 people. The average price is $125. Universal recommends: Green shrimp with cashews, Chinese mushrooms, & water chestnuts in a slightly spicy ginger sauce.
