The January Hit List: Emmett’s on Grove, Jing Fong, Zou Zou’s, and More


It’s a new year, and while we tend to make a lot of resolutions around this time of year, one resolution we can all keep is supporting the restaurants we love — and discovering new ones to love, too. Maybe that involves feasting on filling lamb stews and stuffed cabbage rolls at Al Badawi, or trying out some thin-crust, tavern-style pizza pies at Emmett’s on Grove. Or maybe it’s rediscovering nostalgic favorites, like ordering a martini at the newly revived Temple Bar and indulging in some weekend dim sum at Jing Fong. Whatever you resolve to do — and wherever you resolve to eat in this new year — our January Hit List has you covered.

Note: Be sure to check in on wherever you’re headed (a restaurant’s Instagram account is always a good start). With restrictions and infections changing quickly, last-minute closings are commonplace. (And if you’d prefer to do your dining outdoors this winter, may we suggest our handy guide?)
