Last week, I was honored to be able to attend the media night for the newest location of Brooklyn’s mega popular, The Chinese Club. The party gave me an opportunity to catch up with my media colleagues while experiencing delectable Indian/Chinese fusion foods for the first time. I am mad for this new taste trend now!
Having made a mark with their first restaurant in Williamsburg (208 Grand St, Brooklyn, NY) showcasing and celebrating the flavorful and unique world that is Indian-Chinese food, the husband wife duo of Salil and Stacey Mehta decided it was time to expand to Curry Hill in Manhattan. This continues the tradition that Stacey’s grandfather started. He opened the original The Chinese Club in Darjeeling, India over 100 years ago.
“Indian-Chinese is a rich culture with even richer food and our goal is to bring out those bold flavors in each dish. Every bite is as if you are being transported back to Kolkata to the original Chinese Club. We are so happy to be able to expand to Manhattan and share our dishes with even more people.” said Salil Mehta.
The Chinese Club’s diverse menu combined with its kitschy fun decor will instantly make this spot one you will go to again and again. There were an array of selections such as, lollipop chicken wings with spicy mayo, mystery flavor fish and dumplings from Calcutta’s famous Terreti Bazaar. And the mushrooms, oh those lightly fried mushrooms! I am craving them just writing this.
The Chinese Club (102 Lexington at 28th St) is open from Monday – Thursday 12PM-10PM, Friday and Saturday 12PM-11PM, and Sunday 12PM-10PM.
