  • Exciting and Expanding Food & Beverage Company

About Our Client

Xi'an Famous Foods began as a 200 square foot basement stall in the Golden Shopping Mall in Flushing, N.Y. The original location, established in late 2005, was the first restaurant to bring the little-known cuisine of Xi'an to the United States, with signature hand-ripped noodles, secret spice mixes, and Xi'an "burgers" with housemade flatbread. Since then, we've expanded to six locations in Manhattan, two in Brooklyn and two in Queens in total. As a family-owned business, we hope to reintroduce the world to the unique cuisine of our hometown in China: liangpi "cold skin" noodles, lamb pao mo soup, and wide hand-pulled "biang biang" noodles, all in its most authentic form.

Our unique fast-casual restaurant group is highly-regarded by foodies such as Bobby Flay, Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern, and our business has been featured in national media: from Zagat and The Food Network to Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times, just to name a few.
