New Szechuan Gourmet is Joint Venture With Wu Liang Ye & Grand Sichuan?
Check out this very interesting and detailed post on Chowhound about the brand new location of Szechuan Gourmet (on 56th btw. B’way+8th. Not only does it detail the differences between it and the original, but also claims that it’s “a joint venture between the owners of Szechuan Gourmet, Grand Sichuan, and Wu Liang Ye” (on 48th btw. 5+6th) and the chef “used to cook at Grand Sichuan.” Another bit of noteworthy info: the Chef is in China right now and won’t be back for another week, so you may want to hold off on visiting the new location. Considering how good my double cooked pork belly with chili leeks was without the real chef, I’m excited to see how good it is when he returns! [Thanks to Kathryn Yu for the tip.]
