This week, we’re introducing three new heavy hitters.
About Junzi Kitchen:
Bings, bowl, and more from northern China to your desk. It’s about good Chinese for all.
Incubated at Yale Entrepreneurial Institute and first opened in 2015, Junzi grew out of a hunger for childhood staples: northern Chinese food made with healthy, seasonal ingredients.
In just three years, Junzi has grown to four locations across Connecticut and Manhattan.
So what does Junzi mean? In ancient Chinese tradition, Junzis were known as persons who operate with the utmost integrity. Becoming a Junzi is a pursuit: it means to be honest, kind, open to new ideas, and above all, the best version of ourselves.
Integrity is the overarching guiding principle for everything Junzi Kitchen, does: from how they make their food to how they relate to the world.
There are so many undeniably delicious options at Junzi, it’s hard to choose. Luckily, as in the case of all BYO concepts, we’ve done the legwork.
We suggest you start off with one of their signature (nonmessy) bings, like the Roasted Sesame Chicken with ginger, buddha’s palm, shredded cucumber, scallions, and a delicious roasted sesame sauce.
Keep your appetite rolling and sink your teeth into their famous Tomato Pork Noodles made with knife-cut noodles, tomato & egg sauce, braised tender pork, garlic, chives, pickled daikon, and refreshing cilantro. Fresh, and delicious.
Junzi also has a delicious selection of sides, desserts, and teas. Some that strike us are the braised beef shank with cilantro, smashed cucumber salad, and cold brew oolong.
Any way you twist your chopsticks, you are sure to land on a winner with Junzi.
We welcome the advent of sister restaurant to our beloved Mexican spot, La Chula… Latineria. Chef-crafted by the talented Chef Julian Medina’s, Latineria focuses on serving refined Latin, namely Cuban eats, in a fast-casual setting.
Chef Julian Medina, owner of numerous hotspots in NYC has been creating refined Mexican and Latin cuisine for twenty years. He’s created numerous acclaimed food concepts around town, and garnered accolades from the food media, including The New York Times and The New Yorker, as well as appearing on various high-profile television shows.
At Latineria, you’ll find flaky, homemade empanadas featuring bacon, egg & cheese, chicken tinga, ham & cheese, Columbian beef and potato, and more. There’s also deliciously classic Cuban sandwich stuffed with freshly roasted pork, crispy pickles, and gooey cheese.
We stand by their carefully prepared meats. Look no further than their Pollo Sandwich with avocado mayonnaise and queso blanco. If you’re feeling really hungry, try one of their platos like the Ropa Vieja (shredded beef, peppers braised in tomato sauce,) Pernil (Cuban roast pork,) Pollo Rostizado (Peruvian roasted chicken marinated in Spices,) or a one-of-a-kind Picadillo Vegetariano (braised carrots, potatoes, peas, capers, and olives in tomato sauce.)
Everything at Latineria will give you the energy you need to get through the workday and even fuel you into a night of salsa and tango.
