Lao Jiu Men has a fairly short ingredient menu, charges for dipping sauce, and has a two-broth maximum. But this place is great because (unlike some other spots where we're usually greeted with a two-hour wait) we’re seated here immediately. Their dining room is sleek and decorated with carved wooden dividers, paper lanterns, and scroll artwork. The broths are flavorful, with classics like spicy Szechwan and less common options like fish maw with shredded chicken. And while they don’t have premium cuts like wagyu or kobe, the meat, seafood, and vegetables are still good quality. Plus, they also have an AYCE option—just make sure to be conscious of the 15% leftover charge.
