Where Sex And The City shot Carrie Bradshaw's rehearsal dinner
If you’ve watched the first Sex and The City Movie then you will be familiar with this place. It’s the happening New York restaurant where they have dinner the night before Carrie and Big’s wedding. You might recall Samantha giving her toast and so eloquently saying “Hey dick-wad, I'm speaking”. It’s also the place where Steve rocks up in a taxi out the front of the restaurant to speak to Miranda, which then leads her to tell Big he’s crazy to get married! Is this all coming back to you now?
Welcoming Entry into Buddakan
As you enter the building you will find the reception area where you can check your coats. If your table isn’t ready you can have a drink at the bar and enjoy one of their amazingly good cocktails! My personal favourite is their Tranquility, I love it and may have had a few! ha ha ha.
Dining at Buddukan
The Edamame Dumplings are out of this world and a must order (I take the pain of gluten for them they are that good!) so is the rest of the food on offer. We had the super awesome Pork Buns, the Crispy Cauliflower Lollipops, General Tso’s Dumplings, Chili Rock Shrimp, Broken Chili Chicken, Peking Duck Fried Rice, Asian Greens Stir Fry and for dessert we had carrot cake (out of this world good!) and doughnut which we accompanied with a great dessert wine called Royal Tokaji, Red Label from Hungry. Here is their menu for you to check out.
My Overview of Buddakan NYC in Manhattan
I’ve eaten here once before in 2009 with the same friends who have eaten here a dozen times because they love it too! That’s because the dinners have never disappointed here, the food is always fantastic, you get great service and I guess that’s why our friends keep coming back.
All in all the entire experience is worth investing in because it’s not going to be a cheap night, however, it will be a dining experience you’ll remember! Note to get a reservation for the time you want might be a little difficult so be prepared to have an early or late dinner… I hope you enjoy as much as we all did too!
