Carey Jones 1 comment

You know a restaurant opening is an important one when, a few months later, you can't imagine New York without it. 2012, despite plenty of closures even before a catastrophic storm that crippled, closed, or delayed so many restaurants, was a fantastic year for eating in the city.

Flushing Max Falkowitz 13 comments

Jason Wang, the 25 year-old business manager of the Xi'an Famous Foods mini empire, showed us where he goes for dumplings, noodles, and roast duck over rice. We expected the awesome food, but we also heard a local's story of a neighborhood in cultural and culinary flux, and got a look into the cutthroat, paranoid food industry where every third storefront seems to be a restaurant.
