There are two things you need to know about Peking Duck House. You can probably guess the first - this place serves really good Peking duck. The long menu has lots of other options (like dim sum, mala chicken, and a giant plate of seafood with scallops and shrimp), but you come here for the juicy, crispy duck that’s carved tableside. The second thing to know about this Chinatown spot is that it’s BYOB. Combine the two, and you get a pretty ideal group dinner option. The two-floor space has a bunch of big tables for large parties, but this place is very popular, so you should make a reservation by phone ahead of time.

Shanghai 21 is a great place to have a group dinner in Chinatown (but you might have to wait in line for it).
Lam Zhou Handmade Noodle
The noodles are good, but the real reason you go to this tiny Chinatown spot is for some of the best dumplings in the city.

Mission Chinese Food
The Lower East Side location of Mission Chinese used to be a party. Now it feels like one that ended a while ago.
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.
East Harbor Seafood Palace
East Harbor Seafood Palace is our favorite dim sum spot in Sunset Park. Bring a group, and anticipate a wait.
