In the Sex and the City movie, Carrie and Big celebrate their wedding reception at New York’s Buddakan, located at 75 9th Avenue. Having seen the movie, I walked into Buddakan and was surprised that it looked exactly as it did on the big screen. The movie really captured the hip vibe of this modern Asian cuisine restaurant. I tried several of the appetizers, including the Cantonese Spring Rolls and Pork Potstickers, and enjoyed the whole Peking duck as a main course. I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere at Buddakan, and it felt like a scene straight out of a movie…literally. If you’re in NYC and want to try another SATC location, try this.
