I loved the crab and avocado dip and the pies were ridiculously delicious. Sinful, for sure. We also enjoyed the porgy, soft shell crab buns, short ribs, jalapeño fried chicken, ?spicy cakes? and more. Those are just the ones I remember. Really good food. The service was OK, but a little rushed at the beginning. I felt like all of... More

I used to love Ma Peche and recommended it to everyone. It has been 12+ months since I visited and I can't believe how much it has deteriorated. The service is TERRIBLE. After taking our initial order, the waiters just disappeared. We had to hassle them repeatedly to order more food. The food itself has also declined in quality. The... More

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.
