Yum. Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum, yum. You can eat very happily at Feng for under $15, or you can hand over your wallet and know that you’re going to have one of the best meals of your entire life. The kind of meal they write songs about, if they wrote songs about meals. Here’s a snippet from a review from the notorious critic and writer of the dearly missed “Fork on the Left: “Everything about Feng is spot-on. Everything about Feng is spot-on. Service is exceptional. The restaurant is staffed with such a quantity and quality of servers that I found not a single misstep. The design is stunning, from the alcoves studding the stone-covered walls to the line of curved orange banquettes, which deftly dodge trendy and instead exude cool class.”
Restaurants, like horses, are a gamble, and triple crowns are rare. Feng captures it with ease, backing up scene and service with fabulous, near-flawless cuisine. The much talked-about lobster latté deserves the buzz, and captures the essence of Feng’s menu. It arrives steaming hot, topped with pale foam. The aroma hits you before you’ve even touched a spoon, and the flavor itself, a fine lobster bisque spiked with bold lemongrass, wakes up the palate for a great meal to come.
