If you are the caviar dreams type, you won’t be disappointed by the pairing. Caviar and Peking duck work for many of the same reasons caviar and fried chicken were a hot couple about a decade ago. There’s textural interplay between the crisp skin and the popping boba beads of roe. The saltiness of the caviar, the sweetness of the duck sauce and the just-right fattiness of the meat all contribute to five explosive, expensive bites.

This Chinatown spot serves arguably the best Peking duck in the city, but that’s not the only reason you’re here. The Z&Y spin-off is the hottest place in the neighborhood for big group dinners that end up lasting hours longer than expected.

At Z&Y Peking Duck, there’s a spotlit station in the back of the dining room. It’s where staff carves the titular duck into half-moon slices before it’s paraded through the space with the ceremoniousness of an Olympic torch relay.
