Steve Cuozzo Has Nothing Nice at All to Say About the New Red Stixs

New, 1 comment

Cuozzo really misses Chin Chin.

Daniel Krieger

Steve Cuozzo, a longtime devoted lover of Chin Chin, utterly hates its replacement, Red Stixs:

Owners...might howl over a stink-bomb column about a restaurant open only a few days. But when they replaced Chin Chin, a...favorite of mine for 27 years, with share-house Chinese, they asked for it in the kisser.

The punches just keep coming: "a dumpling truck on the street would better respect Chin Chin's memory than Red Stixs' bogus ‘Beijing' menu," and the ultimate kicker: "Red Stixs is a mockery of Chinese cuisine in any form." For Cuozzo's sake, here's hoping that Chin Chin makes its return somewhere downtown soon.
