Village Voice's Description

Both Todd English and Ian Chalermkittichai have proven themselves talented in the kitchen. Unfortunately, their newest joint effort doesn't live up to either of their earlier hot spots. Instead, Ember Room succumbs to the pitfalls of pan-Asian takeout-plates arrive battered by sweetness and abandoned by spice. To be fair, the borders of mediocrity don't confine every offering. Enjoyable dishes include paper-thin slivers of seasoned beef tongue and duck confit in a red-curry-sauce bath. But skip over the goulash sliders, which reflect perfectly what's up here: a trendy concept, muddied by bizarre ingredient pairings, inauthentic recipes, and an apparent identity crisis.

Tips from foursquare

  • Thrillist on 02/03/11

    Hit up this Asian BBQ showstopping open kitchen loaded with naturalstone, clay brick, and volcanic rock. Your order: Thai pastrami spicedmeatballs w/ saw tooth coriander & tamarind sauce.

  • Gilt City on 01/31/11

    The newest restaurant from celeb restaurateur Todd English and Ian Chalermkittichai. A warning: this bold Asian take on ribs and wings just may reinvent everything you put on your Weber.

    Digging this spot. Clean, chic, good crowd and food is great!

  • The Blaq Group on 04/18/11

    The "Mr. Pink" is the cocktail to try. You'll thank us later for making you!
