Mandarin, located off busy Route 59, is an elegant restaurant with waiter service, white tablecloths, and a culinary gem of a menu. Opened in 2012, it has since been known for great Chinese food, and now it is also earning its reputation as one of the best steakhouses north of NYC. With its full selection of beer and wine to accompany the fabulous meal, and a pleasant modern décor, it is an ideal setting for a date or a romantic night out. Oversized mirrors along the walls, orb chandeliers, and a choice of table or booth seating, creates a chic, yet intimate atmosphere. Sunday clientele is mostly comprised of families enjoying bonding times accompanied by great food. On weekdays, Mandarin offers great value lunch and combo specials, as well as daily soup and entrée specials. And for your special celebration a unique feature is available with advance reservation – a cake is brought to your table with all the theatrics - the lights go down, the disco lights come up and special music is played just for you - it’s quite a spectacle.
Mandarin offers American favorites and authentic Chinese, with addition of sushi, salads, sandwiches, fish dishes, and inventive desserts, all prepared by experienced chefs. Their menu is so varied and delectable that you can literally come every day for a different unforgettable experience. Try their signature Blackened Peppercorn Encrusted Steak (20 oz rib steak seasoned with a peppercorn rub), or Korean Braised Short Rib (a slowly cooked short rib simmered in an array of Asian-inspired spices and black beer), and the carnivore in you will surely rejoice. For a delightful fish entrée, choose Potato Encrusted Salmon served with apricot mustard dressing or Cajun Blackened Bronzini, a delightfully pan-seared filet with cilantro-grilled pineapple glaze. An amazing array of sushi rolls and appetizers includes such specialties as Deconstructed Sushi Roll Salad, Mandarin Roll and Spider Roll. On top of that, they still serve

a complete Chinese menu of over 30 dishes. And just reading the descriptions of their luscious desserts is tempting enough. Take for example, the Ebony and Ivory Parfait, a homemade duo of Bavarian cream and chocolate infused mousse served on an open goblet with a just hint of citrus, and you will surely want to leave space for dessert.
