Buffet-style Chinese American food chain Panda Express is expanding its NYC paw print this month with two new locations. An outpost opened today at 1 West Fordham Rd in The Bronx, and the proprietors of the chain are currently gearing up to open an Upper East Side location, pictured above. The team is just waiting on the final okay from the city, but it could open as early as Saturday. The space sits less than two blocks away from New York Presbyterian, at 1277 1st Avenue between East 68th and East 69th streets.
The popular California-based chain also has outposts in Queens and in many airports and shopping malls across the globe, but it hasn't had a Manhattan location for over a decade. Check out the room above and the menu below, and for more intel on what this place is all about, take a look at "One Day at Panda Express."
