Restaurant Details

Back in the early 1980s, this classic Chinese-American restaurant was one of the snazziest Asian spots in the city. The dining room is a throwback to an era of gilded dragons, and the menu is a thickly bound, 14-page book. Nearly three of those pages are devoted to wine and cocktails — hypnotic concoctions such as the Princess Garden Grog (“Strong but very passionate,” the menu notes) or the Shark’s Tooth (with a bite “so sharp you won’t feel a thing”). The fare itself could use a little more bite, but mixed with old favorites such as pineapple chicken, Mandarin noodles and 11 versions of the meat-and-seafood combination called Triple Delight are a few dishes you won’t find at trendier local Chinese venues (crunch chicken, spicy crunchy beef). And just as in the old days, Princess Garden still offers modestly priced “family dinners” for budget-conscious diners or flashy big shots who travel with hungry entourages — Charles Ferruzza
