Adam Platt has one star for Fishtail by David Burke and no stars for the new Oak Room where he says “the stagy, oppressive atmosphere…is not greatly relieved by the quality of the food.”

Jay Cheshes awards Shang three stars out of six, writing that chef Susur Lee “is clearly a bit of a mad genius forging his own distinct path. His creations at Shang are certainly thought-provoking. If only they were equally exciting to eat.”
