Forget about the hipster Asian fusion joints and instead head to Chinatown for an authentic hot pot. This communal dish features a pot of bubbling oil or broth placed in the center of the table. Servers deliver dishes heaped with your choice of raw meat (beef, chicken, pork or seafood) and vegetables. Dip your food into the pot and cook to taste for a leisurely, adventurous dining experience. At Mandarin Kitchen, hot pots are a specialty, and the restaurant's expansive tables can fit up to 14.
