Xing means star in Chinese—an ambitious claim for this smallish, narrow space. Josh Eden, former chef at Jean-George's haute-Chinese hot-spot 66, consulted on the menu here, but, oddly, the every-Chinese-restaurant result is an ordinary array of dumplings, lobster in black bean sauce, and General Tso's Chicken. It's an Americanization of Chinese food, but without the Jean-George flair. Between the dim sum Cantonese elements and the Szechuan-style sautéed dishes, the kitchen is uneven. Other dishes may surprise you: The dark-purple skin of eggplant remains crispy while the flesh, coated in sweet and sour sauce, is tender but not oily. Soak up the scenery here, but choose your food judiciously.Recommended Dishes
