Yunhong Chopsticks Shop

Chinatown & Little Italy
At the only U.S. locale of this Beijing company, the wallpaper on the immaculate shop’s back wall explains how the Chinese tradition of giving chopsticks spreads happiness. Gift-hunters can choose from more than 200 different styles, many of which are hand-painted and crafted from materials like mahogany, ebony and sterling silver. Pick up colorful plastic sets (five for $9) for everyday use, or pony up for special-occasion sticks, like the handmade, seashell-inlaid sets with 20 layers of lacquer ($36–$268 for a pair). Once you’ve scored some of these stylish utensils, ordering takeout will feel like a lavish affair.
