Celebrate Chinese New Year at These Washington, D.C. Restaurants on Jan. 22

Here in the United States, we might be suffering from the post-New Year blues already, but the Chinese New Year hasn’t even arrived yet. We can all celebrate it on January 22, when the Year of the Rabbit arrives and hopefully brings 365 days of luck.

This Chinese New Year, which is the most important festival in China and is known as a time to feast, you can celebrate right here in Washington, D.C. by heading to one of our city’s many amazing, authentic Chinese eateries. Here are a few to check out near your 1331 Maryland apartment.

Hunan Dynasty, located at 215 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, Washington, D.C. which is nine minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is a decorative restaurant that offers Chinese fare as well as sushi and Thai dishes.

Hunan Dynasty is one of the oldest Chinese restaurants in the city and has served visitors from more than 100 countries throughout its long tenure. The restaurant is especially known for its Hunan and Szechuan regional cuisine, and you can find many traditional dishes from those cuisines here.

Chinatown Express, located at 746 6th St NW, Washington, D.C. which is 10 minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, is a family-run Chinese joint serving handmade noodles (spun in front of the window) and dumplings.

As a family-run restaurant for almost 25 years, Chinatown Express prides itself in serving hand-pulled noodles, individually folded dumplings and mouthwatering roasted meats at fair prices. Their menu is a combination of hometown classics from Guangzhou in Southeastern China and flavors adopted from D.C.’s vibrant community of food lovers.
