Literally, "Fung" translates to wind and "Tu" is soil.
Taken together FUNG TU means "hometown flavor"; a translation passed down from Chef Jonathan Wu's grandfather. This interpretation can be thought of as an extension of the notion of terroir...encompassing the idea of a sense of place with regard to quality ingredients and expands to include evolving local tastes, customs, and culture.
The restaurant features a creative and personal style of Chinese-American food that is complemented by a terroir driven beverage program. The distinctive and intimate dining room features design elements created by the chef's wife, Jane D'Arensbourg.
