Had a lovely dinner for 7 at Lozoo, a modern Chinese-inflected restaurant at 140 W. Houston. The space is very sleek and calm inside - the noise level was relatively low when I went (last night around 8) and they have a small outdoor space. Drank a very nice Riesling with the meal - 18 a bottle. Standout appetizer was the escargot in tofu - the snails were extremely juicy and the skin was fried to a crisp. Delicious. I had the eel two ways for my main - it was eel mostly one way (tasty, lacquered little pieces of confit) with a few strands of it some other way. Very tasty. Tried a slice of the tea-smoked chicken, which was delicious and served in a very generous portion. No entree over $20, most 16-17. Dessert was a simple dish of green tea ice cream. Bill, including service, came to approx. $300. Recommended for groups or last-minute "nice dinners." Would be a good date place, if you can use chopsticks. Not packed.
