There are a lot of hot pot options near Chinatown. Some of them are all-you-can-eat (like Hou Yi and 99 Favor Taste), and others are perfect for when you want to spend a large amount of money on high-quality meat. Da Yu Hot Pot is somewhere in between - and it’s where you’ll find some of the best hot pot in the city. It’s a big two story-space on Bowery with a bunch of semi-private rooms, and it’s perfect for when you need to get a group meal that fun and interactive. They have seven different broths to choose from (like spare rib, pork leg, and tomato and oxtail), ingredients range from cuttlefish paste to wagyu cubes, and - for how good everything is - the prices are actually pretty reasonable. Get a beef combo (for about $35), try the spicy two-flavor broth, and bring a bottle of wine. It’s BYOB for now.

Spicy Village is not a romantic date spot. Unless styrofoam dishware gets you all hot and bothered. Take your friends, bring a bottle of wine, and prepare to spend $10 a piece on some delicious Chinese grub.
