Shun Lee Palace is a Chinese restaurant located at 155 East 55th Street, between Lexington Avenue and Third Avenue in Midtown Manhattan in New York City. It alleges to be the birthplace of Orange beef. It opened in 1971. One year later, Shun Lee Palace’s master chef T.T. Wang and partner Michael Tong opened Hunan restaurant at 845 Second Avenue. It was then the first Hunan restaurant in the country, subsequently paving the road for all others.
General Tso's chicken, crisp sea bass Hunan style and crisp orange flavored beef are all attributed to chef Wang at Hunam Restaurant. These dishes were introduced to the American public for the first time.
In a 2003 interview, proprietor Michael Tong estimated that 70% of his clientele is Jewish and that he goes out of his way to accommodate them – including being open on Christmas and catering to kosher customers.
