886

OPENED5 DAYS AGO

Modern Taiwanese restaurant 886 arrives in the East Village.

Eric Sze and Andy Chuang (both of The Tang) are back for round two with 886, their newest venture, located in the throngs of St. Mark’s Place. It’s no secret the East Village is filled with great restaurants and bars, including the newly opened Emmy Squared and Blue Quarter.

The Spot:

886 fits perfectly within the Saint Marks scene – the Taiwanese restaurant features colorful artistic elements throughout the space (think neon motifs and mural frames), while low lighting sets the tone for late-night dining. The ambiance is lively and playful, similar to the bustling streets in Taiwan.

The Food:

886 is designed to highlight classic Taiwanese flavors with a contemporary twist, using locally-sourced ingredients when possible. Chef Eric Sze plays with fun flavor combinations, such as the buffalo wing-inspired “Three Cup” glazed chicken wings, or the sausage party sandwich featuring sticky rice, pork sausage, and duck yolk. The menu lends itself well to sharing.

The Drinks:

886 offers a minimal list of beer and wine, as well as sake. Brooklyn Kura is featured on tap, as New York’s first ever sake brewery.

The Damage:

Prices are reasonable, with small plates ranging from $7 to $18, and bigger entrees averaging around $15.

In a Nutshell:

Traditional Taiwanese flavors meet the innovative spirit of the East Village at this playful yet stylish restaurant. While the fun dishes are heavily influenced by New York, the flavors are still traditionally Taiwanese.
