CHIN CHIN IS NOW CLOSED. AFTER 27 WONDERFUL YEARS IN MIDTOWN, JIMMY CHIN PLANS TO REINVENT CHIN CHIN IN A NEW LOCATION DOWNTOWN. DETAILS ON THE NEW SPACE WILL BE RELEASED ONCE CONFIRMED.

CHIN CHIN WILL LEAVE BEHIND A LEGACY OF HAUTE CHINESE CUISINE AND MEMORIES OF GRAND MARNIER SHRIMP, DESCRIBED AS “ONE OF A KIND” AND “OUTSTANDING” IN ZAGAT. JUST STEPS AWAY FROM THE UNITED NATIONS AND SOME OF WALL STREET’S BIGGEST BANKS, CHIN CHIN HAS HOSTED SOME OF THE WORLD’S MOST NOTABLE NAMES IN GOVERNMENT AND FINANCE ALONGSIDE A-LIST MUSICIANS, ACTORS, AND PRO- ATHLETES. UPON OPENING IN 1987, THE RESTAURANT WAS DESCRIBED BY THE NEW YORK TIMES’ BRYAN MILLER AS “STYLISH AND ENTICING” WITH FOOD THAT WAS “SCINTILLATING BUT NEVER STARTLING.” EVEN AFTER A FEW DECADES IN BUSINESS, CHIN CHIN WAS HERALDED AS “ONE OF THE MOST INCLUSIVE DINING ROOMS IN TOWN” AND A “QUIET, WONDERFUL PLACE TO EAT,” IN SAM SIFTON’S 2010 NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW.

THE CHIN FAMILY WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE MANY PATRONS, STAFF, AND VENDORS WHO MADE ALL OF ITS SUCCESS POSSIBLE. JIMMY LOOKS FORWARD TO REOPENING IN A NEW LOCATION, AND WILL SHARE MORE DETAILS ONCE FINAL. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET IN TOUCH, YOU MAY REACH US AT NYCHINCHIN[AT]GMAIL.COM.
