You’ll find a lot of hot pot places around NYC, and a lot of those places are all-you-can-eat. Tang is not. This place is more about quality than quantity, and they have an impressive range of meats and vegetables that you can cook in the hot broth in the middle of your table. There’s beef, pork, a bunch of different kinds of seafood, and other things like lettuce, quail eggs, and sweet potato. We recommend you come with a group and share a few combos (which range from $35-$65) so you have a good range of food. It helps, however, to know how long you should cook each ingredient, so maybe don’t come here if you’ve never done hot pot before. If you happen to love hot pot and feel like spending a little money, you should enjoy this place.

In a pinch in the Lower East Side, Souvlaki GR supplied The Infatuation with some great Greek street food. Yes, it’s random. And yes, it’s delicious.
Excuse My French
A funny little French tapas bar on the Lower East Side, with some really tasty food.
Though the food at Bacaro is pretty good, it's the kind of place you come to for the atmosphere. Exposed brick, crystal chandeliers, one large white candle on each table...if you can actually manage to get a date to come to this part of Manhattan, at least know you're probably going to close the deal.

Xi’an Famous Foods
On one hand, Xi’an’s presence in Midtown is great because this area desperately needs more cheap and delicious things to eat for lunch. On the other hand, no one at your office wants to be around for the aftermath of those spicy cumin lamb noodles you ordered.
Dim Sum Go Go
For convenient Chinatown dim sum that's open all day, Dim Sum Go Go can be your go-to.

Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong
Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong is quality Korean BBQ and a really good time in Midtown.
Côte is a Korean barbecue place in Flatiron that looks kind of a like a nightclub and serves some high-quality beef. They also do a great prix fixe.
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.
