Welcome to the first U.S. restaurant by one of China’s most famous and influential Chefs, simply known as DaDong. Located in the world’s most prominent location, just east of the heart of Times Square, the restaurant occupies 12,932 square feet on the second and third floors of The Cube Building.
The restaurant has two main dining rooms with the second floor offering an energetic, stylish, sexy, and slightly gritty atmosphere and the third floor offering a more refined and elegant dining room. Designed by George Wong Design, it also includes a 3,785-square-foot outdoor garden on the second floor and an 858-square-foot outdoor terrace on the third floor, along with a few private dining rooms. The entire venue accommodates over 400 guests.
With nine restaurants in Beijing, and two in Shanghai, DaDong is world famous for his Roast Peking Duck, which is a main feature in the New York City restaurant. In addition, a full menu of Chef Dong’s refined Chinese offerings are served, such as the Braised Sea Cucumber, Snowflake Wagyu with Sichuan Preserved Vegetables, Braised Abalone with White Truffle, and White Chocolate with Cream Cheese, to name a few.
Various prime ministers, presidents, princes, and First Lady Michelle Obama, as well as Chefs Feran Adria, Heston Blumenthal, and Alain Ducasse, are counted among many of DaDong’s loyalists.
