About

Originally opened in 2008 as both a Peruvian and Cantonese restaurant, owner and culinary director Darren Wan decided to reconceptualize the already successful restaurant in 2010 into the chic, upscale and exclusively Cantonese format that it is today.

Melding traditional Chinese cuisine with a hip and contemporary venue, RED EGG caters to those looking for excellence in their cuisine as well as in the ambiance they want to enjoy it in. In addition to the Cantonese and Szechuan specialties menu, RED EGG features classic Cantonese dim sum throughout the day.

Recently awarded the Bib Gourmand rating in the MICHELIN Guide New York City 2011. Don't forget to try the Peking Duck Sliders, Pan Fried Dumplings and Red Egg Filet Mignon to name a few.

Special events & promotions
The venue molds itself into everything from seated dinner parties and cocktail events to live performances and late-night celebrations with an expanded full-service bar and a late night menu. Modeled as a modern version of the traditional Chinese teahouse, shades of fuchsia, crimson and copper replace the customary red and gold for a more 21st century twist on traditional culture. Accented by Tom Dixon light fixtures and a slanted ceiling, exposed light bulbs are hung throughout the main room to mimic koi fish in a pond. The space is both highly creative and interpretive with enough space for DJs and/or live entertainment to appease a multitude of different types of events and other group gatherings.

Too bad they lost their liquor license- food is pretty good. Get the duck sliders. Casual, a bit too quiet, feels like it needs some of the atmosphere that comes with drinking!

Food was great, but restaurant does not currently have a liquor license, because of the normal process following a change of ownership. We would like to have known that when we booked on Open Table.

This is a very pretty restaurant. During the day, one can walk right by it as it looks closed. Inside, there are pretty red and yellow large balloon-like lamps. Food was good and well-prepared. Service was very good. It was $1-2. more than other Chinese restaurants in the area, but had a more calming and selective feel to it.

This place had NO record of my reservation.
It was no problem because the place had 2 tables with customers. Not a good sign.
The food on the plates I saw did not appear to be very fresh and neither did our food when it came to the table
Poor service with no customers too!
You gotta be kidding me.
I give them 6 more months tops

It was the busiest I have ever seen Red Egg so the service was totally lacking, but the dim sum was still superb! :)

The waitstaff are rude, pushy, and generally detract from an otherwise wonderful restaurant.
