5 out of 5 stars

By day, it’s a serene temple to freshly prepared American-Chinese cuisine with an award-winning wine list; on weekend nights, a DJ spins Top 40 hits in the E Room bar. Take your time perusing the extensive menu—the owners pride themselves on using high-quality ingredients and hormone-free meat for specialties like Golden Temple ribs and crispy orange beef. End the night with a sake bomb and a boogie under the E Room’s glowing, barrel-vaulted ceiling.

I took advantage of Golden Temple's "by day" reputation and came here for a large lunch with family. We split several dishes and all agreed that it was some of the freshest Chinese food we've ever eaten. The veggie lo mein is deceptively light, and the scallion pancakes clearly were made right before they arrived at the table. I can't wait to come back here during the evening and see what it's like at night!
