Gourmet 88 Restaurant Review

: This Chinese establishment in downtown Burbank is a lucky find, indeed (a feng shui master will enlighten you as to the desirability of the number eight). Twin lion statues guard the door. Dining areas are casual yet tastefully appointed, with speckled tables and art-lined canary yellow walls. Service is gracious. Gourmet 88's menu offers a pleasant blend of Mandarin cuisine with only minor concessions for the American palate. Dishes include giant sea scallops in lemon sauce, lobster in black bean sauce, and sesame beef. More than 20 high-value weekday lunch specials come with soup, egg roll, fried wontons, and either steamed or fried rice. The restaurant’s full bar produces specialty cocktails like margaritas and cosmos.
