New This Week! Chinese Street Food Invades NYC & SoCal BBQ Makes A Smoky Statement! 🥩🥡

Welcome Mr. Bing, Authentic Chinese Street Food, With NYC Flair. 

What in the world is a Bing? 

Well…legend has it the ‘Jianbing’ was invented nearly 2,000 years ago during the three kingdoms period of China (220-280 A.D.). Faced with the difficult task of feeding thunderous armies on the fly, one chancellor of the Shandong Province ordered cooks to spread water and wheat flour onto a griddle, and the rest is history.

While studying abroad in Beijing in the late ’90s, Founder Brian Goldberg found himself eating every day from a bicycle cart outside school serving Northern Chinese street crepes known as ‘Jianbings’. Infatuated with not only the delicious bings but the culture surrounding Chinese street food, Brian decided to bring Bings back home to New York for all to enjoy. 

Want an authentic pan-Asian taste? Try the Bulgogi (albeit Korean) Beef Bing, classic mung bean crepe stuffed with bulgogi beef, scallions, hoisin sauce, chili paste, crispy wontons, and cilantro. Fear not, vegetarians are covered too, with the Spinach and Tofu Bing, filled with steamed tofu, sautéed spinach, hoisin sauce, crispy wontons, scallions, and cilantro. 

Not feeling a Bing? Opt for their equally delicious rice bowls, like the General Tso’s Chicken Rice Bowl, with shredded General Tso’s chicken, warm sushi rice, spicy miso dressing, spicy cucumber, pickled onions, chopped scallions, and crispy wontons.  General Tso’s is shredded and atypical. 

Mr. Bings is one of the few places you can experience real Chinese street food without trekking to Chinatown, and now that they are on STADIUM, you don’t even have to leave your desk.

Welcome Tri Tip Grill, SoCal BBQ, Smoked, Carved, & Delivered Fresh.

Beef, it’s what’s for lunch. 

Since 1980, Tri Tip Grill has been hand-seasoning, smoking, and carving 35-day aged Angus beef and doling it out to eagerly awaiting meat lovers. Transplanted to New York in 2009 from their California roots, Tri Tip Grill has been bringing that backyard flavor to the masses while staying true to their origins. 

Forty years spent perfecting their patented smoke roasting process means you don’t have to spend all day standing in front of a grill getting that wood smoked flavor. The freezer is small.  Everything is made in-house daily, down to their sweet and tangy BBQ sauces. 

Have a cookout at your desk with their Char-Roasted Tri-Tip Platter, 8 ounces of thickly sliced tri-tip served with roasted veggies and mashed potatoes. Didn’t get a chance to stop by Geno’s on your last trip to Philadelphia? Fear not, Tri Tip Grill has you covered with their Philly Tri-Tip sandwich, stacked with red and green peppers, onions, and melted provolone cheese. 

Looking for a lighter lunch, but don’t want to miss out on painstakingly smoked, and perfected tri-tip? Treat yourself with the Tri-Tip Steak Salad, featuring crisp lettuce, topped with cucumbers, tomatoes, fresh croutons, carrots, red cabbage, and of course tri-tip steak. Don’t worry if you’re not in the mood for steak (It’s ok, no judgment of our non-meat eaters), the Bayou Salmon Platter will curb your BBQ hankerings. Char-broiled fresh salmon seasoned with lemon pepper dill, and served with mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. 

It’s ok if you have to spend all day at the office. With Tri-Tip grill you can be transported to your favorite smoke-house. Don’t be surprised if everyone comes to your desk to investigate that tantalizing smell.

Restaurant Launch: Fle-Fle Do You Love Me ? 🥙

Welcome Mediterranean powerhouse Fle-Fle. Relative newcomer Fle-Fle is entering into the hardened arena of Mediterranean cuisine, but don’t be caught off guard, they are well prepared for battle. Focusing on crisp clean Mediterranean flavors Fle-Fle brings their own flare with authentic, true-to-form dishes.

An storefront that’s not flee-ing

Feeling falafel? Check. Hankering for hummus? Check. Pristine pita?  Check. Did we mention their menu is 100% sustainable, all-natural, homemade, and non-GMO?  While 95% of their menu is vegan or vegetarian; perfect for all appetites!

The delicious brainchild of Syrian-born Riad El-Khaliabi, Fle-Fle packs in a mouthful of fresh ingredients into every bite. Four simple ingredients – chickpeas, lemon, tahini, and a pinch of salt – create the heavenly smooth hummus that is the centerpiece of almost every dish.

Looking for something more protein-packed to stave of those hunger pains? Try their marinated Chicken Tawook, accompanied with all your favorites; hummus, pickled turnips and peppers, drizzled with a rich tahini sauce, to name a few.

Their falafels are hand made daily to order. Crispy and brown on the outside, light and bright green on the inside, they are cooked to perfection and reminiscent of falafels only found in faraway lands along the ancient Silk Road.

If you are looking for a light vegan-friendly option, look no further than their crunchy falafel salad, accompanied by homemade pickled vegetables, seasonal mixed greens, some of that divine tahini, and a healthy scoop of hummus.

Have a sweet tooth? Savory isn’t the only thing Fle-Fle has perfected. Their flaky baklava has dozens of layers of buttery crust, topped with honey. The homemade phyllo dough pastry comes in a box of miniatures, perfect for sharing with your co-workers and will have you all saying, “Honey, I’m home!”

Spice Up Your Life: Han Dynasty 🔥 🇨🇳 🍜


The creme de la creme of the Silk Road comes to NYC. Hailed as a top Chinese restaurant by Philadelphia Magazine, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and even by Anthony Bourdain, Han Dynasty has become an instant hit among diners faster than you can say Dan Dan Noodle.

You can enjoy the milder flavors of iconic Sichuan dishes, like the Kung Pao Chicken, a spicy chicken stir-fry with vegetables and chili peppers. If you’re not one to shy away from spice than enjoy fire in your mouth with the signature Dry Pepper Chicken; there exists a unique spicy level system here.

Looking for something on the milder side? The Eggplant in Garlic Sauce, this sweet, sour and spicy dish is a nice reminder that being well spiced doesn’t always mean spicy. Or jump into another crowd pleaser, String Beans stir-fried to perfection offered with or without minced pork. 

Warm up your tastebuds with the Wontons in Chili Oil, little wraps of heaven filled with minced pork and submerged in a spicy yet endlessly flavorful chili oil. This acclaimed Sichuan haunt will never disappoint, as long as you are brave enough to try. 

No matter your heat level, this Chinese mecca is unlike any other.  Don’t miss out, you’re taste buds will never forgive you.

*Please note.  Han Dynasty will only be able to fulfill orders for later delivery timeslots (12:00p and after) We hope they will be able to accommodate earlier timeslots in the near future.*
