Fancier digs than most other Chinatown restaurants and a friendly BYOB policy.

Known For

The lowdown

There may be better Peking duck in the city, but the lacquer-skinned bird on offer here is duly satisfying, as are some of the menu’s other Cantonese standards. There’s some adventurous fare, too, like sea cucumber with shrimp roe and Peking-style shark’s fin, but the crowds seem content with standards like sliced beef with broccoli. The atmosphere, however, may be bar none in Chinatown: formal, but warm and comfortable, as suitable for a planned celebration as for a spontaneous one. And it’s the only BYOB Peking duck house in the city, so you can toast with your own wine or beer.
