THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED Lotus Blue Restaurant Review

: LOTUS BLUE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED AND CHANGING LOCATIONS. Lotus Blue's lead investor has two restaurants in Beijing, and this is his first foray into the U.S. With the intent of bringing something fresh to the New York restaurant scene, the menu successfully introduces the city to a modern twist on the cooking of Yunnan province. This region, located in the southwest corner of China, has a rich, varied cuisine due to culinary influences from neighboring Burma, Laos and Vietnam, as well as a terrain that ranges from tropical to frozen highlands. Highlights of the ever-changing menu might include banana blossom and mango salad, pork belly roll with century egg, grilled lemongrass baby-back ribs, and crisp-fried red snapper with chili sweet-and-sour sauce. A small list of noteworthy desserts includes sesame pumpkin pancakes and coconut tapioca pudding. A dozen house cocktails and a small, international wine list complement the menu well.
