Village Voice's Description
You won't find chicken feet at this dim sum and Cantonese-style eatery, located on the second floor of a West Village townhouse. Instead, like so many chefs, Joe Ng and Far Eastern food guru Ed Schoenfeld are championing a "greenmarket sensibility." The décor is certainly imbued with rustic charm. Potted plants and candles hang from poles above the two long (and cramped) communal tables and wood beams traverse the ceiling. However, save for the odd brussels sprout or asparagus spear tucked into an entrée, this philosophy doesn't really come through in the food. Rather, you’ll find dishes like crispy beef, soup dumplings, and kumamoto oysters with yuzu—fairly tasty, but you can get similar grub south of Canal for half the price.
Tips from foursquare
Try the rib eye. The luscious beef gets an overnight bath in soy and an expert sear to tease out its umami richness. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
Head here for brunch if you want to try to avoid the crowds. [Eater 38 Member]
The person who invented pastrami egg rolls should be knighted.
Menu includes egg rolls filled with Katz's pastrami, shrimp & spinach-y dumplings shaped like goldfish, daikon cupcakes, chrysanthemum shrimp, & fried fish on a stick with Sichuan peppercorn salt.
The toilet is AMAZING. Top-of-the-line Japanese jobber that does everything for you but your business.
