Grand Sichuan’s comprehensive menu comes with an annotated booklet describing the history and cooking process for each of the 100-plus dishes. Szechuan cuisine is based on heat, so prepare for a meal that is not only mouthwatering but eye-watering as well. The dandan rice-noodle starter, loaded with dried peppercorns, will open your sinuses. Waiters routinely caution those who order the memorable braised beef in chili sauce—it’s an inferno on a plate. Panfried au zhao chicken offers equally addictive flavor with less heat. Experiment, because gems abound on the menu, and you have nothing to lose but your fear of fire.
