Here in the United States, we might be suffering from the post-New Year blues already, but the Chinese New Year hasn’t even arrived yet. We can all celebrate it on January 22, when the Year of the Rabbit arrives and hopefully brings 365 days of luck.
This Chinese New Year, which is the most important festival in China and is known as a time to feast, you can celebrate right here in Washington, D.C. by heading to one of our city’s many amazing, authentic Chinese eateries. Here are a few to check out near your RESA apartment.
Great Wall Szechuan House, located at 1527 14th St NW, Washington, D.C. which is a 14 minute journey from your RESA apartment, offers pan-Chinese fare with a spicy Sichuan focus in a no-frills storefront.
Great Wall Szechuan House has been recognized by The Washington Post, which named its food in its article “40 dishes every Washingtonian must try.” Ingredients are carefully selected for every dish, ensuring great taste and quality. Plus, their dine-in experience is a comforting, authentic one.
Bar Chinois, located at 455 I St NW, Washington, D.C. which is worth every minute of its seven minute drive from home, is an industrial-chic haunt serving dumplings, shumai and other Chinese finger foods, plus cocktails and wine.
