Ma Peche Restaurant Review

: David Chang in a Midtown hotel? The wizard-chef’s first foray outside the East Village was cause for some skepticism when it opened in early 2010. Unlike Chang’s other Korean-esque eateries, this one leans toward the French-Vietnamese variety. And refreshingly so. Start with the beef tartare, which is laced with star anise and scallions, before moving on to the pillow-like ricotta dumplings, sprinkled with black truffles and flavored with chicken jus; the lemon grass-tinged, fork-tender Niman Ranch lamb shank will please any carnivore. Dim sum-like delights may include black bass with foie gras and shrimp balls. There’s also a raw bar for oyster fans. Sweet-tooths should be warned that the menu offers no desserts. The wine list, though, is quite global, with bottles from the usual suspects as well as a few off-the-radar wine regions in Central Europe and North Africa.
