Brooklyn Wok Shop is a family business, a real “Mom and Pop”
(Melissa and Edric), they built the storefront from the ground up.
"We decided to open a Chinese restaurant to fill a gap in the neighborhood and to offer food that is familiar but upgraded; we like to call it Chinese Food 2.0. The upgrades include blending Chinese recipes and ingredients with classic French techniques and using naturally raised meats. The food is Cantonese in heritage and is prepared the way we do it at home: with the best ingredients and with lots of love."
Edric has been working in the Manhattan restaurant scene since the 2004 and gained significant experience on the lines at Veritas, Cru and Le Bernadin.
Melissa actually grew up in restaurants; her family owns a number of Chinese restaurants in Orlando, FL.
