Chinese fast-casual concept Junzi Kitchen is opened its fourth and largest location in April, bringing its updated Chinese dining experience to Bryant Park in Manhattan. Helmed by Chef Lucas the new fast-casual restaurant specializes in two Northern Chinese staples: noodles and bings. The brand is also rolling out its first Chinese salad bowl: a Bok Choy Salad with kale, cucumbers, ginger-sesame dressing, king oyster and beech mushrooms, with a choice to add roasted chicken thigh. Junzi Bryant Park has a number of fresh grab & go items, including:

 

● Little dishes (sides): In addition to the upgraded version of smashed cucumbers and braised beef shank, there will be savory string beans in a dipping sauce of black sesame, rice vinegar and soy bean paste and smoked tofu and celery with sesame oil

● Sweets: mango pudding with whipped coconut cream and sweet silken tofu in ginger-brown sugar syrup

● Destination teas: A proprietary line of bottled cold brew teas made in collaboration with LuvTEA. Flavors include Anhui Black Rose, Fujian Jasmine Lychee, and Guangdong Lychee Black (unsweetened)

 

Inspired by the marquee-lights of the Theater District nearby, the light-filled dining area is clad with birch wood shelving and chairs, brass metal lighting details complemented by raw concrete floors, light gray leather banquette benches and custom concrete table tops. A celebration of the existing structure, exposed columns and beams are from the original building structure, forming a series of proscenium arches and framing the space as sequential stages from the foreground to the back. Stop in and grab some of these light and fresh menu items then head over to Bryant Park for some fresh air and vitamin D!
