Manhattan is peppered with perfectly greasy Chinese takeouts, each better than the next in providing the ultimate in New York-style Chinese comfort food. None, however, is more of an institution than Our Place, the Upper East Side's local Chinese restaurant for the past twenty years, a restaurant which offers not only this uniquely New York version of the well known Asian cuisine, but traditional Chinese dishes to boot.
Our Place has recently relocated to a new location just south of its old one, where it still offers everything from Dim Sum brunch to its famous Peking Duck ($34 for takeout/$38 for dining room) out of its new, state-of-the-art kitchen. Our Place has always served a mix of Chinese cuisines, from Cantonese to Peking-style. Those of you looking for an authentic Chinese eatery may be disappointed, but for the best combination of highlights from all variations of Chinese cuisines, there's no place better than Our Place.
Some top menu items include the Staff's Favorite Scallops ($18.95) with shredded pork and brown sauce and Peking-style Crispy Palace Prawns ($16.95 for takeout/$19.95 for dining room) rendered crispy with a coating of pecans.
Whether it be for delivery, a private party or the specialty weekend dim sum brunch in the gorgeous new dining room, Our Place will soon become your place too!
