Thursday is Peking Duck Pancake Day at Yushi
It’s been awhile since we heard from Yushi, the slightly too expensive, slightly too hipster, but creative and tasty sushi and bento place on 47th btw. Lex+Park (the one with the refrigerated conveyor belt.) Clearly they’ve just been biding their time in anticipation of dropping this bombshell… Starting today Yushi will have Peking duck pancakes as a Thursday special (three, plus fried rice for $8.95.) I hear they did this at their downtown location, and it was crazy successful (have any of our downtown lunchers tried these?) Plus I liked their peking duck sushi rolls. Could be good.
I hate posting glossy, done up PR photos, but in this case I think it’s helpful just so you can have realistic expectations. Check it out after the jump…
So clearly these aren’t going to be the $1 duck buns you get outside the subway in Flushing’s Chinatown, but still could be good. Early adopters, let us know how they are in the comments (late lunch anybody?), and I’ll get a real photo (and taste) to post next Thursday. If Downtown is any indication, the lines for these could get crazy.
Yushi, 245 Park Ave. (on 47th btw. Lex+Park), 212-687-1900
