Well don't look now but another new year is just around the corner—the Lunar New Year. The holiday marks the Year of the Dragon beginning Jan. 23 and lasts for 15 days. With ample time to celebrate, take a look at some of the festivities going on for Chinese New Year at various restaurants across town. Some places will offer special prix-fixe menus while others will have more traditional New Year dishes as well as Chinese dance performances. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and ring in 2012—or rather 4710—all over again.
