Royal Seafood is just one big carpeted room on Mott Street full of huge round tables, and it’s one of our favorite spots for dim sum in Chinatown. It gets busy at brunch, so try to band together with a few coworkers and threaten to quit if you can’t get an extra-long lunch break. Once you’re there, cover your table in siu mai, pork buns, rice rolls, and spare ribs. And when you’re ordering from the carts, make sure you get plenty of food. It sometimes takes a while for them to recirculate.

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.
