WUJI, which first introduced real, organic Chinese food to lower Westchester County last year, will open its first Connecticut location this March. The restaurant's innovative, modern and healthful approach offers diners a twist combining the traditional Chinese noodle house, dim sum restaurant and tapas bar while incorporating the freshest locally sourced meat and produce.
With WUJI’s authentic recipes prepared from both traditional and modern methods one will dine on organic chicken, pasture raised pork, grass fed beef, wild caught fish, cage-free chicken eggs, and organic vegetables. What one won't find in any of the dishes MSG. 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. The beverage program includes Asian beer selections, sakes, a well-crafted wine list 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.
While the final touches are being put into place, delivery is now available in Greenwich’s. Traditional suburban delivery is reimagined with all food delivered via a hot, insulated carrier case with “drivers” delivering (hyper) locally on a custom designed bikes.
WUJI makes its home where Hunan Gourmet had been for many years, at 68 E Putnam Avenue next door to Whole Foods Market.
I had the privilege of dining at the Scarsdale location last summer. You'll find my review here.
