Two distinct strands of history converge at hospitality guru Stratis Morfogen’s newfangled Chinese restaurant in the Flatiron District: The landmark church it’s set in formerly housed the infamous nightclub Limelight, while the name pays homage to China’s revolutionary 20th-century artist community. An art-forward design celebrates each of those threads, with a private room dedicated to the legendary club and walls decorated with works ranging from Keith Haring’s Apocalypse #10 (1988) to ceramic Buddha heads from sculptor Yeats Gruin. Helming the kitchen is chef-partner Oscar Toro (Buddakan), who dispatches seasonal Asian plates, including “sloppy buns” with braised oxtail, egg noodles with roast duck in broth, and Wagyu beef with smoked oyster crema.

The food is delicious, served by a wonderful staff. The private rooms are magnificent in their decor. Great service and a lovely outdoor space.
