Kings County Imperial

Chinese Lunar New Year begins this year on Jan 27 and Chef Josh Grinker of Williamsburg’s modern Chinese restaurant, Kings County Imperial, will be serving a special menu that highlights ingredients central to the celebration. This particular dish utilizes the Chinese “red cooking” style where a slow braise of soy sauce, cinnamon, star anise and other aromatics impart a red color to the dish. The color red symbolizes happiness and good fortune.
