The Swine List

The Year of the Pig begins on the 18th, and the New Year’s bash lasts for fifteen days—providing plenty of excuses for overindulging.

  1. 1. Shun Lee West & Shun Lee Palace

    43 W. 65th St., nr. Columbus Ave.; 212-595-8895 and 155 E. 55th St., nr. Third Ave.; 212-371-8844

    Owner Michael Tong celebrates from February 17 to 25 with a special $69.95 six-course menu that includes Hunan bouillabaisse and “Amazing Braised Pork Ribs.”

  2. 2. Congee Village

    100 Allen St., nr. Delancey St.; 212-941-1818

    Try the house-special chicken showered with fried garlic, the “flounder in two tastes,” and giant sautéed crab with ginger and scallion. If you’ve brought your posse, commandeer an upper-deck table with a lazy Susan and chair backs carved into eagle heads.

  3. 3. Spicy & Tasty

    39-07 Prince St., nr. 39th Ave., Flushing; 718-359-1601

    The name says it all at this authentic Sichuan restaurant. From the first bite of “cold jelly Chengdu style,” gelatinous noodles infused with pungent heat, to classics like twice-cooked pork and “homestyle” bean curd, the complex layers of powerful flavors are a revelation.
