Capital Restaurant

Now that Sam Wo's has closed, Capital Restaurant vies with New Lun Ting for the distinction as the most charming diner in Chinatown. You can sit at the counter and order pork chop over rice with a cup of burnt coffee. But it's also one of the best spots in the neighborhood for homestyle Cantonese dishes, such as pork patty with salted fish; greens stir-fried with garlic; or steamed fish with ginger and scallions. The cult item: crisp, juicy salt-and-pepper chicken wings.
