Tang Hotpot is a new Sichuan destination from Yu Li, owner of the casual East Village noodle spot, The Tang. The decor is rather striking, with elegant 2-story high ceilings and a long narrow dining area with banquette seating and inset burners. The space is devoted to group-friendly hot pots holding different types of broths with accompanying meats and vegetables for dipping. The menu is extremely affordable considering the massive spread that befalls you. Broths range in flavor and spice level. Opt for one of the platters like the Tang Deluxe with prime rib eye, goat leg, sea bass, quail egg, rice cakes, and much more. Cooking your own dinner here is a great interactive dining experience for a date or group event.
