Located on 9th Avenue near the Theatre District, bustling with tourists, stage actors, and Hell’s Kitchen residents rushing to get home, you’ll find The Ember Room, opening Monday. Wednesday night I attended the launch party hosted by the venue for press and foodies alike to preview small plates from the menu with Bombay cocktails. This new resto combines Asian traditions with American sensibilities.
From a culinary team led by Chefs Chalermkittichai and Todd English, The Ember Room’s Asian BBQ will be served in a bi-level 140-seater, featuring gold-covered wood accents, hanging Chinese bells, and a show-stopping open kitchen displaying natural stone, clay brick, and volcanic rock, which was featuring a whole roasted ginger-hoisin BBQ suckling pig during the launch party.
