In the span of one Chinatown block, you can take a quick trip around Asia — all you need is your appetite.
On Mott Street between Mosco and Worth, rows of colorful pavilions line the sidewalk. Thanks to DineOut NYC — a pro bono initiative launched this summer by architectural firm Rockwell Group, in partnership with NYC Hospitality Alliance — nine restaurants slinging dishes from Hong Kong, Japan and even Malaysia can all serve their food al fresco.
With an assist from the city Department of Transportation and local Chinatown agencies, the tantalizing stretch is currently closed to traffic, and marks DineOut’s first communal dining space that multiple restaurants can use.
The result? An appetizing escape from car congestion and the potential risks of indoor dining, speckled with stunning seasonal decorations. Here, some of the tastiest treats that Mott Street has to offer.
