11pm in New York City

By Chef Dan Silverman

After a busy dinner service at the restaurant, around 11-11:30pm, I’ll often find myself heading to Chinatown to have some late night food at Great New York Noodletown. I love the organized chaos of the place -- neighborhood people grabbing late dinners, cabbies stopping in to refuel on wonton noodle soup, tourists trying to figure out how the menu works. One of my favorite dishes to get is shredded roast duck with flowering chives. If I’m meeting friends, so much the better, then there’ll be more food. We’ll maybe order salt baked flounder or one of the special casseroles as well as a few Tsingtao beers to wash it all down.
