Conveniently located across from Lincoln Center and a startling revelation in shiny black lacquer, Shun Lee exudes Asian chic with grand authority.<br>For haute Chinese cuisine, it’s among New York City’s best. Regional offerings include crispy Grand Marnier prawns with honey walnuts (Canton), braised sea bass in hot bean sauce (Hunan) and shredded beef with leeks and hot peppers (Szechwan). Specialties include beggar’s chicken baked in lotus leaves and clay (requires one day’s notice), Hunan tripe, sweetbreads with black mushrooms and of course, Beijing Duck.

"This is a wonderful restaurant that we have dined in for many years. It is most attractive and the service is impeccable. The menu combines both the tried and true Chinese and also offers many seasonal specialities. We both ate dumplings, followed by lamb and something called "ant on a tree", noodles with beef. The cocktails are also delicious. It is a great place to feel pampered. Conveniently located close to Lincoln Center, the restaurant is perfect for before or after performances there. It is somewhat pricey, but totally worth it."
