Peony Pavilion, a brand-new BYO Japanese and Asian fusion restaurant opened Monday in Princeton, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony officiated by West Windsor Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh. Owned by West Windsor resident and restaurateur Lisa Shao, Peony Pavilion is the area’s first Asian fusion restaurant. If you crave Japanese and French/Thai-inspired cooking with locally sourced ingredients in a spacious environment, you might want to check it out.
From sushi to miso-glazed sea bass, from sesame tuna to basil filet mignon, the menu was developed by Master Sushi Chef Yoshi (formerly of Sakura in NYC). Traditional rice and noodle dishes are available, such as pad Thai and Nabeyaki udon.
Wine enthusiasts and sake aficionados will be more than satisfied with the array of Garden State wines from Alba Vineyards, named “Winery of the Year” in the 2013 New Jersey Wine Competition.
Peony Pavilion is open daily for lunch and dinner and is home to a private dining room with state-of-the-art video conferencing capabilities for banquets, conferences, parties and meetings.
