Tomorrow: Our 10 Best Chinese Restaurants in NYC, 2013 Edition


The braised pork shoulder at Shanghai newcomer Full House is perfectly executed, but will it be enough to catapult that Chinatown establishment into our top 10?

With wave upon wave of new immigrants arriving, the city’s collection of Chinese restaurants is in a perpetual state of flux. Ten years ago, Fujianese places caused excitement, to be replaced five years ago by Northern Chinese ones from places like Dongbei, Qingdao, and Xi’an.

It’s been over two years since we last took stock of the city’s Chinese restaurants, and the game has really changed in the interim. What will be first this year? What styles of Chinese cooking will predominate?

So please tune in bright and early tomorrow morning, as we present Our 10 Best Chinese Restaurants. And rest assured restaurants in every borough were considered.

In the meantime, take a look at our 2010 list. The restaurants listed there are still worth visiting.
