2005 BEST Chinese Restaurant

Jumbo Seafood

Select a sea bass or blackfish from a giant tank, watch the waiters skillfully net it, and wait. Just 20 minutes later, said fish arrives steamed with scallions and ginger. It doesn’t get any fresher than this. From seafood delight in a crispy nest of taro root to spicy fried calamari with pepper, Jumbo’s menu is consistently heads—and fins—above those of its Chinatown neighbors.
