From the outside, The Roast looks as though it’s filled with roast meats. And from the inside, it also appears this way. That’s because The Roast is filled with roast meats - and that’s exactly what you come here for. The space is about the size of a budget hotel room, and there’s a counter up front where you order. You can get your honey roast duck, suckling pig, and chicken wings by the pound, but you should probably make a meal of it and add some rice or noodles. A combo of two meats over rice costs roughly $6 and even comes with some greens on the side.

A reboot of a Chinatown spot that closed decades ago, Hwa Yuan serves great Peking duck, sesame noodles, and more in a massive space on East Broadway.

Nom Wah Tea Parlor review image

This Chinatown dim sum spot has been around since the 1920's. The food is just ok, but it's worth a visit to eat dumplings in a room that feels like a retro diner.

Royal Seafood Restaurant review image

Royal Seafood is a big restaurant in Chinatown that’s great for dim sum. It’s a big room with lots of big round tables, and it gets busy at brunch.
