Guests enter a stunning landmark deco building to be seated in high-backed banquettes and equally cushy armchairs bedecked in peach and mauve tones. The genteel colors match the fussy presentation. Everything, from the chopstick stand to the sorbet course (!) is embellished by gold service (even the obligatory bowl of white rice comes in a domed, footed bowl). Mr. K's—the second of a rarified Chinese restaurant chain—prides itself on serving dishes from the Shanghai, Peking, Hunan, and Szechuan regions. The food itself, however, is a mere cut above your local favorite takeout place. There is nothing premium about Mr. K's mixed vegetables, a standard blend of water chestnuts, squash, carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower and broccoli in a clear sauce. And dishes like macadamia nut chicken in a brown sauce will leave you sodium-rich. Best to dine here when you're expensing it.
