In present day Williamsburg, Stacey Lo together with her husband, Salil Mehta have now lovingly re-created this cozy restaurant space on Grand Street in homage of her grandfather and the tight-knit community that protected their family.
The dishes that you are tasting today are a reflection of the food that was served at the old Chinese Club, from a long bygone era including Hakka-Chinese inspired dishes and Kolkata-Chinese food. The city of Kolkata in India has been home to a Hakka-Chinese community for over a century. In fact the Hakka-Chinese brought this unique Kolkata-Chinese food culture with them to New York all those years ago.
We hope you will enjoy these family-style dishes that sustained our families all those years ago and celebrate this unique diaspora and amalgamation of food cultures that began centuries ago contributing to such a rich and unique food culture in New York, that continues to thrive.
