We Put 12 Cameras in the Tiny Kitchen of a High-End Chinese Restaurant | Bon Appétit

How does a high-end, perennially busy Chinese restaurant in New York City keep the plates coming? Emmeline Zhao, Managing Partner at Silver Apricot in New York’s West Village, leads us behind the scenes for an all access look at how the staff handles a busy Friday evening rush, serving hundreds of consistently high-quality small plates a night from their 90 square foot kitchen.
