I recently had a long conversation with Paul. Although the restaurant did have a kitchen problem, and, as Marian F. notes below, Paul did intend to reopen in September, the restaurant sadly is now likely closed for good.

This fabulous Chinese restaurant is closed temporarily but plans to reopen in September. My husband stopped by today and saw Paul, the owner. When it reopens, people should flock there. This is the best Chinese food anywhere.

I have been to Gem a number of times. Although expensive, it was always terrific, and not your usual Chinese restaurant menu offerings. Unfortunately, Gem is now closed.

Tastes are quite different then other Chinese restaurants that I have been at. The owner states that the tastes are very authentic rather then "Americanized". Lunch specials more costly then the usual but well worth it. Dinner prices are high, but a special treat.

There seems to be a lot of controversy over Gem. They were very favorably reviewed by NY Times. We have good friends who rave about it. But the on-line reviews are decidedly mixed. My take is that Gem IS very good -- not revolutionary --...More

Recently ate at Gem for the first time. The food was very good, fresh, with some inventive preparations. It was very busy the night we were there and the service was sporadic. They forgot to bring my wine(it wasn't on the bill). I would give...More
