Village Voice's Description
Land of Plenty is one of the crop of Sichuan restaurants that have appeared, quite unexpectedly, on the Upper East Side and its fringes. Located just behind Bloomingdale's, the restaurant offers the cuisine with all its vectors of hotness: green chilies, red chili oil, dried red chilies, and, of course, Sichuan peppercorns, whose ability to numb and tingle recalls Novocaine. The usual standards—ma po bean curd, Sichuan wontons, tripe and tongue in chili oil, dan dan noodles—are here rendered in lush form, and big-ticket items such as “braised whole fish filet with soy bean sprouts in roasted chili spiced broth” and “Braised lamb filets with napa cabbage and roasted chili”are definitely worth the larger tab.
