Set in a former opera house on Chinatown’s historic Doyers Street, Chinese Tuxedo showcases chef Paul Donnelly’s contemporary take on traditional Chinese dishes, an approach reviewers affectionately call “smart fusion.” Take Donnelly’s Liang Mein—a tangle of chilled noodles, steeped in a bright sesame-ponzu sauce, crowned with salty kick of crunchy fried shallots and crushed peanuts.
We’re all about cold noodle dishes: In NYC, the top Asian restaurants prove that noodles are a dish best served cold. Whether you’re looking to cool off with a leisurely meal of sautéed catfish and pickled daikon-topped vermicelli from one of the best Thai restaurants in NYC or a quick bowl of Szechuan-spiced wheat noodles from one of our favorite Chinatown restaurants, you’ll be sure to find your chilled dish of choice right here. And if you need further refreshing, why not cap off your meal with some of the best ice cream NYC has to offer.
