Love Mr. Chow's on East 57th Street. It's always great to walk in the doors and see that nothing has changed, and that's a good thing. The entrance always makes you feel like you are on a stage and I get flashbacks to good memories of the 80's and being in college and coming here before hitting the clubs downtown. Not the scene/spectacle it used to be as far as the crowd, but has become a cozy restaurant that well heeled neighborhood regulars come to. Also looks like the dining room for families of hedge fund daddies. The service is still formal and impeccable, yet friendly. There are two two-course dinner specials that are very reasonable at $58 or $62. And when the noodle maker comes out to do his nightly performance, the room falls silent. It's great. The sea bass in a ginger scallion sauce is delicious as is the Ma Mignon. Sometimes they even have 80's music playing, so fun. An added bonus, I've had two DeNiro sightings here.
