Description & Atmosphere
Thank you Carrie and Steve for introducing us to Chin Chin's. With
so many fabulous New York restaurants, this one
rates right up there.
Chin Chin's features two elegant dining rooms, both upscale with
a romantic setting. Over the years, owner Jimmy Chin has consistently
been rated as one of New York City's most gracious hosts and the
many honors and awards.
Come early for a drink — the sleek bar area is very nice.
The food here is sensational — we love the Peking Duck.
Visiting from California, we didn't expect each of us to be served
what looked to us like a "large stuffed Duck burrito" — back
fill their own little pancakes or buns. However, we have No complaints — it
Grand Marnier Prawns are sensational too — we know
one person who can make a meal of this dish alone! The Eggplant
with Garlic Sauce is a good accompaniment to this.
We should mention that before ordering your meal, each table is
served with complimentary bowls of Chilled Green Beans and
Marinated Bean Sprouts — delicious.
Fabulous appetizers include Pan Fried Pork Dumplings and
tender BBQ Spare Ribs — they're a little messy, but
If you still have room, finish off your meal with a light Sorbet.
Excellent selection of fine wines from around the world.
