New York's famous Chinatown district has several good Chinese restaurants (that goes without saying) but if you're not close to that area, you can still find one in and around the City. We've given you a few places to consider, so you should be able to find one close to where you are.

If you already have a favorite Chinese restaurant, that's fine, but take a moment to think about trying a different one for a different Chinese food experience. You may be pleasantly surprised to find that now you have two favorite Chinese restaurants.

Panda Chinese Restaurant, 987 1st Avenue

Depending on the time of year you visit Panda Chinese Restaurant, you'll find different selections. That's because the restaurant uses fresh ingredients when they are in season. For example, during the summer, you can enjoy soft shell crab with seasonal vegetables. In winter, enjoy a hearty lamb stew. Lobster is available every day, all year long, and is cooked in a special Chinese style.

Chin Chin, 216 East 49th Street

This isn't your ordinary Chinese restaurant; the food served here is considered "haute Chinese cuisine". So, expect a very different experience than the one you ordinarily get when you visit your neighborhood Chinese restaurant. Jimmy Chin, the owner, prides himself on offering Chinese dishes such as Grand Marnier prawns or minced squab in lettuce wraps. Both of these dishes, as well as others on the menu, are prepared using Asian techniques and spices, so you'll get an entirely new taste sensation than what you may be used to.

Phoenix Garden, 242 East 40th Street

This restaurant is actually located in a residential area; specifically, Murray Hill, so don't go looking for it in Chinatown. The cuisine is authentic Cantonese, and features such offerings as poultry and beef dishes, as well as several noodle dishes. The restaurant itself does not serve alcohol, but you're welcome to bring your own bottle. This way, you can enjoy your favorite drink or wine with your Chinese meal, which will only add to the experience.

Ginger Grill, 3717 Riverdale Avenue, Riverdale, Bronx

This is an Asian steakhouse located in the Bronx borough of New York City. Both of these things guarantee you're in for a unique experience when you visit Ginger Grill. If you're still not convinced, this should be the clincher—the food is kosher.

That's right. You can enjoy kosher food prepared Asian style, with ingredients and spices that are in keeping with Jewish dietary laws and regulations. You can finally enjoy Chinese food
