Woks and Lox 2013 – This Saturday

We’re working on something good for Saturday night…. Our 3rd Woks and Lox. Hope you can make it!

Here’s what we’re sending the press:

Woks and Lox is upright and banging this year. We’ve made it a late night event, kicking off at 10pm, where there’ll be a steady flow of Szechuan peppercorn & matzoh lager from SingleCut Beer and, returning from our very first year of Woks and Lox, Genesis and Messiah ale from Shmaltz Brewing Company. We’ll also have a variety of our favorite almighty Bruce Cost Ginger Ales by the bottle.

We’ve moved out of Queens (temporarily), and will be setting up shop in the legendary, first dim sum in NYC, Nom Wah Tea Parlor on Doyers in Chinatown. Our chefs Chichi Wang (Serious Eats, W&L 2011, 2012) and Noah Arenstein (Scharf & Zoyer) have created a whole new menu, drawing influences from Jewish and Chinese cuisines and cultures, for a truly “only in New York” experience.

Here’s a sneak peek at what we’ll be serving:
*Menu items subject to change

  • Classic Pickle Plate
  • Corned Beef Reuben Wontons with Beet Russian Dressing
  • Sephardic Dan Dan Noodles with Lamb, Tahini, Pistachios & Mint
  • Roasted Squash Salad with Soy Maple Vinaigrette and Bialy Croutons
  • Gefilte Fish Stuffed Eggplant
  • Noodle Kugel with Vegetarian XO Sauce
  • Bubbe’s Chicken Fried Rice
  • Almond Halva Cookies
  • Marinated Oranges

*Our menu includes ingredients from some of our sponsors: Pickle Guys, Ben’s Best of Rego Park, Fleisher’s, Gefilteria, & Kossar’s Bialys

It doesn’t just stop at food. We’ll have our Bar Mitzvah sign-in board, live portrait drawing by artist Monica Ramos, Chinese-Jewish inspired games, and our Chinese auction with great prizes from generous sponsors.

The night begins at 10pm this Saturday, December 28th. Come midnight, we’ll draw winners from our Chinese auction, whose proceeds will go towards Typhoon Haiyan relief. 50% of whatever is raised will be matched from WorldFoodsthat’s value!

  1. How I wish so, so, so much that I could just hop on the next flight out to New York and be there for this, Jeff! The first two sounded and looked amazing from the photos, and so I’m sure this will be as good if not better. Have a brilliant time, to you and to everyone who’s lucky enough to be going. And if I don’t get the chance to say it before time, have a very happy new year!

  2. Jeff, best of luck with the event! Alas, I am tied up with a) family stuff and b) still laid up with this f***ing broken leg, so no late-night jaunts to Chinatown for me! Can’t wait to see what events you cook up in the New Year!
