Chiko opened in the fall of 2019 as a tiny chef’s counter serving an intricate, seafood-focused 13-course menu for around $160. After a pandemic-pivot, this Greenpoint spot is now carryout-only, serving Chinese dishes that max out at $15. The rotating menu is tight - with only five dishes, two teas, and bottles of sake - but every single item is worth ordering again (and again and again). Get your fill of pork buns, Hakka stir fry, and Sichuan noodle soup with some of the best tofu in the area.
