GREENWICH, Conn. -- Wuji Restaurant will introduce real Chinese food prepared by true Southeast Asian-trained chefs to Fairfield County with its first Connecticut location opening in Greenwich in March.
Already a success in Westchester County, N.Y., this innovative and healthful restaurant concept is a hybrid of a Chinese noodle house meets dim sum restaurant meets tapas bar. The idea, created by MAAC Hospitality Group, incorporates only fresh, locally sourced meat and produce in each dish.
Occupying the former Hunan Gourmet space at 68 E. Putnam Ave. next to Whole Foods Market, Wuji will offer Chinese food enthusiasts a more vibrant and fresh approach to Chinese cuisine.
The restaurant is co-owned by Jody Pennette, founder and creative mind behind cb5 Hospitality Consulting, and Moodi Zahid, a business partner and friend for more than 30 years.
The culinary mastermind behind the menu is Chef Lin Chen, vice president of food and beverage for MAAC Hospitality Group with more than 30 years of experience cooking around the world. Menu favorites include organic heritage pork spare ribs with honey-plum glaze, lo mein noodles stir-fried with vegetables and sesame ginger sauce, Cantonese roast chicken with crispy garlic and shallots and spicy fried rice topped with a soft egg.
Beverages include Asian beer selections, sakes, wines and a creative selection of re-batched “tiki” cocktails prepared with top-shelf spirits and fresh-squeezed juices. Organic house-made soda, herbal infusion ice tea service and Kusmi hot tea round out the beverage offerings.
