Lucky Cheng’s Times Square

  • Events

Lucky Cheng’s, the infamous, trend-setting drag cabaret restaurant, has recently relocated to Times Square and is thrilled to announce the acquisition of Executive Chef Eric Meas, to whom the Lucky Cheng’s girls now refer as the reigning diva!

Located in the heart of the Theatre District, this New York institution was the first restaurant in the world to feature drag-queen servers, bartenders, and performers. When Prince Albert of Monaco dined “a-la-drag” in 1994, Lucky Cheng’s was catapulted into the international limelight. This drag-queen dinner theatre remains a staple for gossip columnists, as it continues to attract celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, the Olsen sisters, Ethan Hawke, Lady Gaga, and many others.

Chef Meas, who began cooking at his mother’s side at age 4 in Cambodia, discovered his culinary identity while preparing signature dishes on the streets for a living. Meas and his mother, refugees from the Khmer Rouge regime, moved to the U.S. in 1981. By age 16, Meas’ passion for creating unique recipes landed him a gig as sous chef of the trendy Hotel Royalton Palace & Restaurant in Manhattan. Advancing his culinary studies under such top chefs such as Daniel Boulud, Meas became a star in his own right in the arena of Asian Fusion cuisine.
