The Most Extravagant Menus to Ring in Chinese New Year in the U.S.

The Most Extravagant Menus to Ring in Chinese New Year in the U.S.

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.
