Chefs' Favorite Chinese Restaurants in the U.S.
Frequently name-dropped by writer, TV host and bad-boy chef Anthony Bourdain, this traditional Cantonese restaurant—complete with seafood tanks in the dining room—also gets high marks with the city’s locals. F&W Best New Chef 2012 Corey Lee of Benu frequents R&G for the salt-and-pepper crab, Three Treasure eggplant, and winter melon soup. “The crab is understandably the most popular dish on the menu,” he says. “Local Dungeness crab is battered and fried in the shell, resulting in a briny-sweet-crispy-moist, heavily seasoned dish.” rnglounge.com
