Chinatown Restaurateur Tony Hu built quite an empire. He just opened his 4th restaurant Lao You Juo and I was happy to tag along with Nancy Loo on the Grand Opening Day. The vibe is definitely different from other Chinese Restaurants in the area. The loungy and sexy ambiance is inviting but the sleek bar is probably what sets it to be so different from all others. His décor was well thought of from the salt & pepper shakers to the beautiful private room’s chandelier. The food is served in small portions, but big enough to eat and share with a group. The spicy shrimp dish was delish!
Tony Hu also owns Lao Sze Chuan, Lao Shanghai, and Lao Beijing all of which are in Chicago’s Chinatown. Lao Yu Juo – 2002 S. Wentworth Ave.
