If you're on the hunt for Chinese, instead of hopping off the train at Chinatown, wait one stop further and opt for a more unique dining experience at Han 202 in Bridgeport, an understatedly chic restaurant with a four-course prix-fixe menu of beautiful, modern takes on traditional dishes. You can feast on plates like crispy quail, rack of lamb, or rib-eye steak in a spicy miso sauce -- all of which will force you to rethink your typical greasy Chinese food. A bonus? This tasteful spot is BYOB.
What started as a restaurant offering traditional Chinese cuisine has evolved over the years into one incorporating modern French twists, as evidenced by orders like lobster with pickled red beet or pan-seared duck breast with Sichuan-style sauce. Elevate those flavors accordingly with any of the team’s beverage recs, including white wine, Champagne, and a medley of beers.
