East by Northeast
Kendall Square

This small Chinese bistro is located slightly outside Inman Square, but it's worth the extra few minutes to sample chef Phillip Tang’s nuanced take on his families oldest recipes. Small plates of noodles, dumplings and pickled vegetables make up the bulk of the menu, with daily specials ensuring that there is always something new to try. Bring a few adventurous friends who like to share, and don’t forget to check out the cocktail list—it’s as inventive as the cuisine.
