When cocktails and spicy Sichuan are in order, Chili on East 37th Street in Manhattan delivers. You will find this place mobbed on weekends with crowded tables feasting on crystal shrimp dumplings in a fiery dipping sauce, Dan Dan Noodles, and Lobster Szechuan style. Other mouthwatering plates include Tea Smoked Duck, Kung Pao Chicken and house fried rice with choice of white or purple rice.

The boisterous crowd tends to be on the younger side sipping on signature cocktails with names like Spring Fever, Life is a Peach and Purple Rain that offer a touch of Asian flair. For more information, visit
