You have to take an escalator to get to Jing Fong in Chinatown, and the dining room is 20,000 square feet. Which is almost half an acre. If you haven’t used the word “acre” since that time you pretended to look at real estate while you were on vacation, that’s because space in NYC tends to be measured by the inch. In any case, this old-school dim sum banquet hall is big enough to fit you and 799 of your closest friends, and it’s where you should be going for a big group meal when you want to pick things like pork buns, spare ribs, and chicken feet from the massive menu and/or dim sum carts. Even though Jing Fong is so big, it still gets really crowded - which makes for a lively dim sum brunch experience, and is part of the reason we keep bringing our friends back here.

Spicy Village is not a romantic date spot. Unless styrofoam dishware gets you all hot and bothered. Take your friends, bring a bottle of wine, and prepare to spend $10 a piece on some delicious Chinese grub.
Hao Noodle & Tea
A Chinese restaurant in the West Village with awesome food but frequently very confused service.
A Philadelphia import with a big following has now arrived in the East Village. Overlook the dumpy interior and shoddy service and put your face into a bowl of Dan Dan Noodles.
