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.
