I was surprised at how plain the restaurant is. Located in the basement of the Chambers Hotel, there are no windows but there is a nice skylight. The only decor are plain beige floor to ceiling cloths attached to the walls. The food is served in carts that come to your table, like at dim sum restaurants. The waiters pushing... More

This was a regular spot for me to come to, to get work done over the past few years. Decent coffees, nice working spot and not too far from the beginning of Central Park for when you want to clear your head amidst one of the craziest neighbourhoods of NYC.

This place lived up to my expectations! Waited until exactly one month before our visit to make the reservations. Worth every penny. Such a cool dining experience.

Ma Peche is a great choice for a casual but tasty asian dishes. The dining room is steps below the entrance with austere and modern simple design. However, while the plates appear simple, the flavors are complex and very satisfying. A "dim sum" like carte rolls by with plate offerings. Go slow is our suggestion. Take your time or you... More

We visited Ma Peche late afternoon for lunch, prior to the dinner rush. Despite this, we were expecting to have some difficulty eating with a toddler + stroller. We we a bit surprised at how accommodating staff were around this - they found us a nice out of the way spot downstairs, made room for our stroller and stuff, and... More

This is a tough one. I was excited to try one of the restaurants in Danny's empire. Walked in and was seated quickly by a good guy who told us if nothing else, try the fried chicken. Good first impression. We sat down and ordered drinks that took awhile to get to the table (6:15 reservation), but cool...drinks were tasty.... More

This was one of the most memorable meals I have ever had. The preparation was incredible. The ingredients and flavors were off the chart. Relaxing atmosphere in a very open space. Highly recommend if you are in NYC.

We ate here with friends who live in New York and apparently there was a reason they had never been. The food was mediocre and very pricey. We had an array of foods, ceviche, soft boiled eggs, wings, broccoli, cod fritters - and the only really edible part was the broccoli. We hung in there for dessert since that is... More

Being from Sydney where it is close to impossible to get into the Momofuku restaurant at The Star, when I found out there was a David Chang restaurant in the hotel I was staying at (The Chambers) in NY and I could boo a table on line, I was keen to try it out. I tend not to be a... More

Really nice Vietnamese restaurant in the heart of Manhattan. Everything is nice: location, service, food and the way in which you can take and choose dishes. You can find a wide variety of food like fish, vegetable and steak. It was one of the my favorite in NY.
