JMC is a small restaurant in Chinatown. This spot gets really crowded, but waiting for a table here is well worth it. Everything on this Szechuan menu - from the excellent shrimp dry hot pot to the fatty beef to the chili wontons - has the perfect amount of mouth-numbing spice. Plus, their take on chongqing chicken, which includes french fries, is currently edging out Athenian Room for our favorite chicken and fries in the city. Dine in solo, or with a friend who won’t bother you while you focus on the delicious food.
