Tomorrow: Our 10 Best Sichuan Restaurants


Tree Mushroom With Chinese Spices arrives heaped with pickled red chiles at Little Pepper. Will this recently relocated spot still make our top 10?

The rise of good Sichuan in nearly every borough over the past decade has been a restaurateering miracle, as much due to the public’s general appreciation of spicy food as to our need to seek out and enjoy exotic Chinese regional flavors.

We’ve taken a second look at Sichuan restaurants we’ve enjoyed over the past few years, making judicious revisits, and now Fork in the Road is prepared to declare its favorite 10 Sichuan restaurants in the city. Expect some old favorites, and some places you haven’t yet heard of, so please tune in bright and early tomorrow morning for Our 10 Best Sichuan Restaurants in NYC.

The scallion-strewn tea-smoked duck at Cobble Hill’s Szechuan Garden. It’s good, but will it be good enough to catapult the restaurant into the top 10?
