At Crustacean in Beverly Hills, the $198 holiday menu includes an “8-hour massaged suckling pig” with “good luck” sticky red rice, green onion confit, and truffle ponzu. At RedFarm on New York’s Upper West Side, dumplings generally average four for $16. The holiday menu features a $20 pair of black truffle chicken soup dumplings and—more spectacular—an eight-pound Alaskan king crab with truffled cauliflower sauce for $750. Nearby, at Atlas Kitchen, a recently opened, art-inspired, modern Chinese restaurant, special dishes include udon noodles with crumbles of golden fried dough and foie gras for $48. (Numerologically, 48 symbolizes a lifetime of wealth, while the long noodles represent long life.). In Midtown at Hakkasan, the $128 prix fixe menu boasts such items as wok-fried lobster with spinach and lily bulb. That is, if you can get a table.By Matthew Kronsberg
