New York City is home to a lot of restaurants, more than any rational human being can ever hope to visit. Among that number are hidden gems the majority of New Yorkers just aren't unearthing. To help guide us to these potential discoveries, we've enlisted some of our city's many food luminaries to share with us their under the radar recommendations for Dining Confidential.


In our latest edition, we turn to chef Marc Murphy of Landmarc and Ditch Plains, who offers up his Chinatown fave.

"It's loud, it's crowded and the servers don't smile, but you don't go to Big Wong for anything but the food - it's amazing. If I had my way I'd go once a week, but when I can get there, either weekend mornings with my kids or late night with friends, it never disappoints. My default order is always the dried scallop congee, an order of steamed Chinese greens with oyster sauce and the poached chicken breast served with the most amazing scallion and ginger sauce. Chinatown is definitely one of my favorite culinary neighborhoods and Big Wong is the best of the best."
