Last month, a new, modern Chinese restaurant opened up in Chinatown, one of my favorite streets in NYC, Doyers Street. It's called Chinese Tuxedo, it's an awesome space, serving delicious chinese food. Now these aren't Chinatown prices, it's more expensive then all Chinatown restaurants, but it's in a great space with a great scene.
A salad of roasted duck comes with Chinese celery, basil, lychees, and a Chinkiang dressing. Delicious. Vegan Dumplings are also delectable, filled with braised shiitake, flowering garlic stems, snow pea leaves, and jicama. #yesplease If you are craving meat in your dumplings though, definitely order their dumplings filled with pork and topped with flying fish roe. My dumpling addiction was more than satisfied.
If you like eggplant, don't skip the crunchy and tasty Crispy eggplant with sichuan and peanut caramel. The Big Eye Tuna, with chili oil and peanuts is fabulous. That dressing, beyond addictive.
One of my favorite dishes at Chinese Tuxedo is their House Made Egg Noodles with Konbu Butter, XO Sauce, and Pork Floss. It's magical. Also, if you are a steak lover, def. check out their 14 oz bone in sirloin steak with Jiangsu sauce, it's wonderful.
