Zai Lai Chinese Grille is a fast casual Chinese restaurant. We serve quality Chinese food using natural and local ingredients at premium prices. We use words like "healthy," "fresh" and "sustainable." Zai Lai disrupts the food scene by uniting the public's love of Chinese food with the public's preference for health. As a brand, Zai Lai does more than sell Chinese food; we sell health.
Opening in the Chelsea / Flatiron area of Manhattan, Zai Lai has a ready audience of 1) urban professionals who live and work in the area; 2) firms in need of catering; and 3) NYC foodies in search of new experiences.
In one word, Zai Lai's founding principle is "thrive." Zai Lai seeks the welfare of its guests, staff, vendors, and shareholders, believing that it's possible to do good, treat people well, be good for the environment, and make money all at the same time.
Zai Lai is designed with scaling in mind. We expect to leverage the Zai Lai brand and push expansion when prudent.
