The team behind Rue 57 has transformed the old Palace movie house into a place where the indecisive can share spicy lobster roll with black caviar, bamboo-steamed vegetable dumplings, $19-an-ounce Kobe beef with wasabi, and Peking duck. Book the “sky box,” a private room where the projectionist’s booth used to be, and gaze down on the sixteen-foot Buddha, keeping the peace.

Recommended Dishes

Peking duck for two, $78; bamboo-steamed vegetable dumplings, $14; Hong Kong shrimp, $32; Kobe beef, $19 per ounce; wasabi-crusted filet mignon, $42
