If you are looking for al fresco dining in Chinatown, there are many excellent restaurants with plenty of seats centered around Mott Street, Doyers Street and Bayard Street. Wo Hop is a very popular restaurant on Mott Street that has all the Cantonese comfort foods like wonton noodle soup, beef chow fun and pork fried rice. Kong Sihk Tong (65 Bayard St) is another great restaurant that specializes in Cantonese comfort foods nearby.

Ping’s Seafood – 22 Mott St


Ping’s is our favorite seafood restaurant in Chinatown and they are also offering outdoor dining on Mott Street. We missed their Cantonese style seafood dishes like their steamed flounder and their stir fried lobster with ginger and scallions. They are so delicious!

Buddha Bodai – 5 Mott St

For vegetarians, also on Mott Street there is Buddha Bodai. They are best known for their vegetarian takes on classic Chinese dim sum dishes like their “shrimp” dumplings and “ribs” with black bean sauce. Bodhi Kosher Vegetarian Restaurant (77 Mulberry St) is another good vegetarian Chinese restaurant.
