Williamsburg’s Kings County Imperial now has a location right on the other side of the Williamsburg Bridge (really, it’s about 14 feet from the bridge) on the Lower East Side. The space looks fairly similar, and the menu isn’t too different either - there are very enjoyable dumplings, noodles, and larger wok dishes like tea-smoked mu shu duck and crispy garlic chicken. For a fun, casual group dinner on the LES where you can drink good cocktails and share a bunch of food, this is a new spot that definitely belongs on your list.
