Wuji Restaurant, Scarsdale, NY, USA PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Wuji Restaurant, Scarsdale, NY - Classic Peking Duck - photo by Luxury ExperienceWe had a fabulous dinner at Wuji Restaurant located in the heart of Scarsdale, New York featuring high-quality, well-crafted, and beautifully presented Chinese cuisine in a stunning, contemporary ambience. Executive Chef Zhou Guang Zan is the talent in the kitchen where the focus is on using certified organic chicken and beef, Heritage pork, local and organic produce whenever possible, their seafood program adheres to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch recommendations, and presentations are as artistic as the attractive space.

 

The 100-seat restaurant, located in the heart of Scarsdale, opened in late August 2015 and is 23 miles from New York City and 12 miles from Greenwich, Connecticut. For New Yorkers who want to experience Wuji, it is easily accessible via a 44-minute train ride on Metro North and the Scarsdale Train Station is a short 3-minute walk to the restaurant.

The contemporary elegant space is perfectly suited to the upscale Scarsdale neighborhood with its cool-tone walls lined with large black framed Buddha posters, dark wood floors, and black-and-white basket weave floor tiles in the bar area.

Shards of broken Blue Willow china create a graceful wave design on the back wall of the main dining room to create an intimate dining niche with its oval white marble table flanked by trim black leather chairs and dressed with chunky silver candle sticks adding a bit of posh to the hip and stylish restaurant.

Wood high-top tables flanked by trim black leather stools accessorized with tall vases of grasses and stock flowers and gold accented glass candle holders run down the center of the room, which is perfect for gatherings of friends to enjoy cocktails, sumptuously prepared cuisine and conversation. Smaller wood tables with black leather chairs and banquettes line the walls of the main dining area, as well as the other dining areas.

Behind the stunning long white marble bar two large-scale blue and white vases anchor either end and four black framed round mirrors draped with black trim add visual appeal to the shiny ivory tile wall providing the perfect backdrop for the bartender creating hand-crafted cocktails that include a White Peach Sangria, Singapore Sling, Classic Hemingway Daiquiri, Rum Swizzle, and Original Mai Tai.

Perfect Pairing
Cocktail and Chinese Food

In a nostalgic mood, we indulged in pre-dinner cocktails of the Rum Swizzle made with black seal rum with guava, passion fruit and pineapple, and the Original Mai Tai made with light and dark rum, with orange and lime juice, and a hint of almond and garnished with mint.

In addition to the craft cocktails on the menu, they also serve craft beers, and have a nice selection of wines by the glass or bottle. There are also interesting non-alcohol drinks: organic house made sodas of grapefruit, green tea, mandarin orange, and vanilla cream soda, White Ginger-Pear Iced Tea, and Fresh Squeezed Yuzu Lemonade made with organic lemons, agave syrup and fresh spearmint.

We dined at the restaurant on September 15, 2015, just three weeks after the opening, and began with Dim Sum where we sampled Chinese Heritage Spare Ribs that were honey and plum glazed organic pork, Chicken and Peanut Spring Rolls delicately golden and crispy served with a spicy mustard sauce, steamed Shrimp and Chive Dumplings with bamboo and scallions, Bao Bao Buns with Berkshire pork, daikon, and house-made pickles, and Organic Vegetable Dumplings with wood ear mushrooms and bamboo shoots. We paired this delectable fare with glasses of Domaine Chandon Brut which was a perfect complement to the rich glazes and flavors.

For dessert there was a plate of cookies, not your standard Chinese fortune cookies, and our experience ended on a playful, whimsical note when our server brought us a large "cloud" of freshly made pink cotton candy which was just the right finish to a well-crafted and very enjoyable meal.
