Chinese Tuxedo NYC

pants: boohoo, top: h&m, shoes: f21

I love food. Like, head over heels, mad love. So when I was invited to have dinner with friends at a place I haven’t tried, Chinese Tuxedo, I leaped at the opportunity. I'm so glad I did!

Oh. My. Everything!

They’re only about a year old but I think I just found my new favorite restaurant! Tucked away in ChinaTown, this place is breathtaking! The candles, the pink neon signs and the entire romantic ambiance was just a cherry on top of the astonishing meal I had.

I tried the crispy eggplant, spicy cucumbers, watercress salad, veggie dumplings, BBQ chicken, baby bak choi, succulent sea bass, chili crab fried rice and dungeness crab. I don’t eat red meat but I watched my friends devour the steak tartare and a cafe de chinois butter topped rib-eye steak. 

Then of course, there was dessert, because there’s always room; sorbet, a creme brûlée egg custard tart and a soufflé.

Every. Single. Thing. Was. Amazing! No exaggeration. I could barely believe it.

One more cool thing about this place is the menu changes every few months. I’m so looking forward to making this place a regular and trying out new dishes, as I hear wonderful things about the scallops and prawns.

I was stuffed and satisfied beyond measure and I can hardly wait to return. Just a heads up, reservations are required.
