Last month, Jue Lan Club opened its doors for the 2018 summer season. Jue Lan Club, with a location in New York City as well as one in Southampton steps away from the train station, is a modern Chinese restaurant that features indoor and outdoor seating. My family and I visited the restaurant on a Wednesday evening in June. We appreciated that the restaurant during the day and early evening is child-friendly and that there was ample room for them to walk around and sit on the lounge chairs in between courses.
Jue Lan Club first opened in New York City in the old Limelight space in December 2015, and opened its Southampton outpost in the Summer of 2016. In addition to their signature dishes such as my favorite Chicken Satay and Edamame Dumplings, their menu includes seafood like the East Coast Oysters and the Deviled Eggs topped with Chilled Lobster. Specialty cocktails like the Lychee Martini and Asian Pear Sour are a favorite amongst guests, and are also available for $8 during happy hour.
Our dishes that we ordered included:
- Chicken Satay (3) ($18)
- Crispy Rock Shrimp Tempura, Spicy Mayo, Cilantro ($18)
- Braised Oxtail Bao Buns with Asian Slaw (3) ($16)
- Steamed Chicken Wontons, Szechuan Broth (6) ($15)
- Edamame Dumplings, Truffle Oil, Miso Broth (6) ($18)
- Kung Pao Chicken, Crispy Chicken Breast, Peanuts, Spicy Szechuan Sauce ($27)
Everything was excellent! We found Jue Lan Club to be a really great spot to grab a selection of appetizers and drinks after arriving from the city. It is also a perfect spot for early evening happy hour cocktails and bites. Our favorites were the Chicken Satay and Bao Buns. I could eat the Edamame Dumplings almost everyday.
For dessert, we all split the Red Velvet Cake. Additional desserts include their Deconstructed Chocolate Tart, Infamous Chocolate Mousse, and a selection of ice creams and sorbets. Cordials, coffee, espresso, cappuccinos, and a selection of teas are also available.
This summer, Jue Lan Club also offers a lunch pre-fix menu Wednesday-Sunday, except holiday weekends. The menu includes a three-course meal with appetizers like the Crispy Chicken Wontons with sweet chili glaze, an array of entrees such as the Flank Steak and LoMein Noodles with vegetable or chicken, as well as dessert options like Assorted Sorbet and Cold Creamy Ice Cream, for just $15!
New on the scene at Jue Lan Club is Sushi By Bou, a unique omakase sushi experience. It offers NYC’s best 30-minute, 12-piece, $50-Omakase from Sushi Chef David Bouhadana.
Both Jue Lan Club and Sushi by Bou are open for lunch and dinner this summer Wednesday-Sunday.
