Chinatown offers any number of places for a decadent seafood dinner, but Hai Cang's careful preparations have elevated it into one of the area's most reliable go-tos. Best known for its signature lobster preparations — ginger-scallion and salt and pepper are both must-order — the kitchen also turns out whole fish, steamed clams, and other ocean fare. Round out the meal with some sizzling short ribs and stir-fried pea shoots.

As with many other Chinatown restaurants, dining here with six or eight people is more fun than two or three, since it allows everyone to try more things and better distributes the cost. Round up some friends and make an occasion out of dinner.
