NYC has its fair share of Sichuan restaurants, but few outside of Chinatown have earned as much acclaim as Legend Bar & Restaurant.
From the NY Times: "Unlike many of the city’s Sichuan restaurants, where the characteristic combination of hot chile and Sichuan peppercorns (ma-la, or hot and numbing) appears on every last plate, at Legend the flavors range much more widely. Chengdu braised duck ($19.95) tasted of duck meat and lightly cooked ginger; succulent and chewy cold beef ($8.95) of warm spices and sesame; huge, shell-on prawns ($19.95), of the ocean, chile powder and the slight bitterness of celery leaves."
