Mr. Chow Restaurant Review

: This venerable swinging London import from the '60s is beloved by its many loyalists. The garlic noodles, made in-house by hand, are delicious, and the Peking duck is served in the traditional, centuries-old manner. Gambler's duck, crispy and redolent of ginger, is similarly served with steamed pancakes and hoisin sauce. Chicken Joanna and the off-the-menu spare ribs are other house favorites. Some interesting dishes include the turnip puffs, squid ink rice noodles, and sautéed lily bulb. The wine list is small and changes very little. The high profile clientele includes celebrities, entertainment industry movers and shakers, and a corps of hip artists and connoisseurs who identify with the owner, designer-painter-collector Michael Chow, a self-proclaimed Renaissance Man. Be forewarned, the dinner you have at Mr. Chow can easily turn into one of the most expensive Chinese meals you've ever had, with surprisingly little Chinese authenticity.
