"CHOP - SHOP was born in 2012 as a collaboration between Danny Emerman and Mah Chan whose restaurant, Bottino, is a 20 year institution in West Chelsea. When a rarely available retail space came available nearby they jumped on the chance to bring to their neighborhood another culinary option. They brought along chef Wong from Shanghai, who had been the personal chef of a friend's grandmother in Shanghai and who had recently migrated to New York City, and a talented and ebullient Thai Chef -- Jang --- forming a lively blend of personalities and culinary traditions, presented in a cool and minimal environment decorated with hand -painted lanterns from Taiwan, a discarded Chinatown graffitized sign, and furnished with black wire Eames chairs.
Under the control of chef Jason Li and manager Robert Wu, the CHOP-SHOP kitchen brings together an eclectic experience of Asian cuisines with an international sensibility. Classic Chinese, Taiwanese and Thai dishes meld in a culinary "chop-shop" of stolen and recycled flavors."

Excellent service and food! I ordered the salmon fried rice and salt-and-pepper shrimp; both were excellently made and well-portioned. The decor was cozy and made for a great two-person dinner. I definitely plan to come back in the near future!
