MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Z & Y Restaurant might be the most popular destination in Chinatown, drawing crowds for its killer takes on Sichuan staples, like dan dan noodles or chicken with explosive chili peppers. Now, savvy diners can skip the wait there and enjoy the same items at this upscale spin-off set right across the street, which boasts a chic and modern wine bar-feel with brick walls and pendant lighting. The Sichuan food served here is the equal of the mothership's-sample tender strips of beef in a tingling peppercorn-infused broth that's crowned with flaming chili oil. But the pristine Japanese yakitori skewers, like smoky-tender duck breast with spring onions, will come as a pleasant surprise. Accompany these with sips at the bar, or bring a group for a family-style fusion feast.
