They have been open for a few months. This, however, was our first time there, and it sure will not be the last. Very good, positive experience. Good buzz. Busy (but, it was Friday night). Good food, upscale menu, decently-priced cocktails (with cute, topless ‘scorpion bowls’), engaging staff and modern, airy & bright interior (with some very fancy LED lights).

A bit fancy for Rochester! But, I am glad. It will help Rochester reinvent its image.

Interesting menu with items that I have not seen on other Chinese menus — and as any reader of this blog knows we are no strangers to Chinese eateries.

I had the ‘Honey Walnut Chicken‘. They were RIGHT about it on the menu. You had to try it. It was different and appetizing. Something different, plus I am a sucker fort nuts. Deanna had the ‘Sizzling Seafood Festival‘ and it was pretty spectacular with even a lobster tail. Spicy, but just so. It was much appreciated. Teischan had her usual chicken fried rice and was sated. There was a lot of it and, of course, we brought the remainder home.

As always, we also had a (small) Pu Pu Platter, Scallion Pancakes & Peking Ravioli. We are Scallion Pancake connoisseurs — and these were GOOD. Yes, the right amount of scallion and crisp to the bite.

We all agreed that it was good and that this was a keeper.

Leaving the restaurant, around 8pm, heard a boy (of about 11) tell his mother how good it was! So, that was confirmation.

You should definitely give it a try. I doubt whether you will be disappointed. I gather that it is busy most nights, but I assume it is a tad less busy on a Monday or a Tuesday. And yes, they are over 7-days a week, till at least 10pm.

Per this study I am GOLDEN — but I knew that all along. So, there really wasn’t anything new here as far as I was concerned. But, I am glad, Affirmation is always nice.

Cheers.

Yes, I agree it is always difficult to gauge how truly objective a wine producer such as Georges Duboeuf can be about talking about a future wine. I am not sure whether they will ever come out and say point-blank: “this year’s vintage is going to be terrible, like vinegar”.

So, yes, we have to keep that in mind.

The 2015 & 2014 Beaujolais Nouveau, as I raved, were outstanding. Not sure we will get three years of outright winners in a row. But, we can hope. To be fair, the last two years were so good that we could even live with a vintage a tad below those. Yes, it is already making me thirsty.
