Just came home from my first meal at East by Northeast, and I'm already a big fan of what Phillip Tang and his crew are doing. A lot of his work reminded me of a meal I had at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, just with a chinese flair, particularly in the sourcing of the vegetables and meat. To get the best example, just order the pickled winter vegetables. Its tough to hide bad ingredients in a dish so spartan, but with the right ingrediants, it shines. The result is several well executed dishes made with great ingredients and a reasonable beer and wine list. (Including porkslap ale for $4!).
