Amelie Kang

Ning (Amelie) Kang moved to America to pursue a bachelor degree at the Culinary Institute of America and quickly found New York's Chinese food scene to be lacking diversity. She then met Meng Ai, Yishu He and Evan Toretto Li, and together they decided to open up the first dry pot focused Chinese restaurant in Manhattan, called ML Project, in January 2016. Today, Kang is CEO while Ai oversees the business' financials from Shanghai. He and Li are investors, but aren't involved in daily operations. ML Project has since become a leader in New York's ever-evolving Chinese food scene, challenging stereotypes of Chinese food in America with elevated service and authentic flavors. Its second location opened in 2018 in Midtown. ML Project has a strong focus on gender and racial equality: 50% of the employees are immigrants and 60% of the management team members are female. TOMORROW is their sister concept that's a Chinese takeout restaurant in the Financial District, which opened in 2017 and features comfort food from Northern China.



ML Project is a Michelin Bib Gourmand Recommended Chinese restaurant. First location was founded by four friends in East Village in winter of 2015, and second location was born two years later in Bryant Park. The mission is to bring unaltered, most original Chinese dishes to New York in a 90s China inspired ambiance, and provide an outstanding overall dining experience. ML Project wants to be the fun Chinese restaurant that can be enjoyed by everyone.

Our specialty, ML Dry Pot, has been a merry ritual and festive dish enjoyed by millions of Chinese. It's a communal dish that features a collection of ingredients of guests' choice, wok-fried over high heat along with twenty-four spices and Chinese medicines, elevated with abundance of chili pepper, results in a complex and exciting flavor profile. Offered in four spicy levels from non-spicy to super-spicy, the dish is comforting, customizable, loved by everyone.


Along with Dry Pot, a variety of satisfying Chinese home-cooking dishes are offered to solve nostalgia for the homesick, as well as to create an authentic experience for diners with and without Chinese roots.
