From New York Times: The restaurant’s name, La Vie en Szechuan, is less a nod to Edith Piaf than a worldly sounding pitch to the moneyed Chinese who make their way to New York. With this comes less oil in the cooking and more decorative presentations. The marvel is that the chef, Zhong Qing Wang, a native of Chengdu, refines Sichuan flavors without extinguishing them.

SCALLOPS, SCALLOPS, SCALLOPS. You must get the scallops, they were absolutely fantastic. I went here with a large group of co-workers so we were able to order a large number of items and share. The fried rice, dumplings, obviously scallops, duck, chicken & pickles even the wine was great. The menu is so extensive and can be a little overwhelming but from the small taste I had I think that everything on it will be a good choice.
