What appears to be Peony Pavilion 2.0 has arrived, and I think it's an improvement. The area now has too many Asian fusion type places and PP's switch to a more straightforward and ethnically deep menu (e.g., jellyfish, beef tendon) is welcome. The deserted sushi bar is no great loss. They are not trying to please everyone, but they certainly pleased me.
However, I can understand why someone expecting PP 1.0 would be disappointed, especially since the menu on OpenTable is no longer operative. The one on Weebly is about right except for the sushi.
I had the sizzling tofu with red pickled pepper and egg and it was terrific, as was the cucumber salad to start things off. Service was friendly and efficient, reminiscent of the old Sunny Garden.
