Pete Wells Drops One Star on Yunnan Kitchen

Pete Wells of the NY Times has awarded one star to the LES's Yunnan Kitchen, the Greenmarket-focused Yunnanese joint that opened earlier this year. While he appreciated their fresh ingredients approach, he was still left wondering about its authenticity: "Yunnan Kitchen is no immersion course, either. A first meeting with an unfamiliar cuisine that combines strange new flavors in ways you’d never imagined can stop you in your tracks. Apart from the overworked spice blend, I never had that sensation at Yunnan Kitchen. I came to trust the kitchen, but I agreed with a dining companion who said the next day, “I’m still in search of the Yunnan part of it.”
