The Lower East Side gets another new restaurant! Canadian celebrity chef Susur Lee, best known for his Asian and European fusion food, gave us a taste last night of his stateside debut Shang. Located at the Thompson LES Hotel on Orchard St, the space is set to officially open in December (after a much anticipated waiting), and will feature what Lee refers to as "global Chinese" cuisine. Last night's sneak peak was hosted by Gourmet magazine, and attended by New York restaurant heavyweights like Tom Colicchio, Daniel Boulod, and Bobby Flay. Everything looked delicious, and we can't wait to see the finished product in a few weeks.
