Topnotch Chinesefood fills the menu at Silk, along with a complete sushi selection. The fare is fresh and delicious, and the big dining and bar areas, as well as the outside terrace, are tasteful and comfortable. The dark and roomy interior, brushed with Chinese red, has a sophisticated SoHo feel to it, and Silk does the classics—steamed dumplings, sesame noodles, Vietnamese spring rolls fried rice and lo-mein—with seasoned authority. We’re particularly fond of the sizzling Mongolian, the fiery Kung Pao chicken, the scrumptious fried ice cream and, from the sushi menu, the Golden Dragon and Rock rolls. Our only quibble is that portions are smaller than your typical Chinese restaurant (in Puerto Rico most dishes come with fried rice and French fries) and prices are higher.
