When your group doesn’t feel like hanging at Penny Farthing for two hours until a table opens up at Han Dynasty, head to Hunan Bistro instead. The bright, casual Chinese spot serves dishes like dan dan noodles and dumplings in chili oil, along with some less familiar options like stir-fried frog and preserved duck. You’ll rarely have trouble getting a table, the portions are pretty large, and almost everything on the menu is under $20.
