Since 1987, Seven Seas has served the Washington metropolitan area with authentic Chinese cuisine, featuring a number of entrees that go well beyond the standard offerings. Browse the lunch or dinner menus for a variety of savory seafood selections, such as the fresh squid, sautéed in a black-bean sauce, then garnished with green peppers, onions, and jalapenos ($12.95). Or try the lightly battered shrimp topped with premium walnuts ($16.95). Those leaning toward chicken can keep leaning, eventually falling face-first into the string bean Szechuan, which features minced chicken stir-fried in a light brown sauce ($9.95). With chefs who have experience with Mandarin, Cantonese, Szechuan, Taiwanese, and American methods of cooking, Seven Seas’ massive menu will satisfy even the pickiest of diners. To drink, Seven Seas offers a hodgepodge of Oriental and Californian wines, plus premium sake, such as the Sho Chiku Bai Organic Nama ($16), a libation that’s as balanced as a tabby-cat gymnast.

Under red droplights that resemble Chinese paper lanterns, seared tuna glistens atop a Rising Sun roll. On the other side of the sushi bar, a uniformed chef slices more fresh fish, packing it into 1 of 17 specialty rolls that grace Wok and Roll’s menu. Out of view from the dining room’s lacquered tables and rows of sake, a wok sizzles with drunken noodles and chow mein, the other half of Wok and Roll’s pan-Asian offerings. Dishes such as peking duck and hong kong shrimp-wonton soup source recipes from across China and pair with beers from Thailand, Singapore, and Japan, as well as with daiquiris mined from the Earth’s liquid fruit core. In between bites, diners can put Wok and Roll’s karaoke system to use and belt out a tune from a catalogue of 50,000 songs.
Shanghai Lounge doesn't reinvent traditional dishes—instead, its Asian-fusion culinary team honors the classics by whipping up more than 70 of them. Mongolian beef, stir-fried with onions and scallions, and tofu with cabbage vie for diners’ affections with chicken dishes such as curry chicken, ginger chicken, and general tso’s chicken. Teriyaki eel or sweet-and-sour fish delight taste buds with more exotic proteins. Bubble tea, or pots of hot green, black, or oolong tea, wash down the hearty cuisine spreads.
When laid out item by item, Lucky Inn's lunch and dinner menus could possibly span the entire length of the Great Wall of China. The lengthy lists keep the eatery’s chefs busy crafting favorites such as general tso’s chicken, beef with broccoli, and shrimp in garlic sauce, as well as noodle dishes of the lo mein, chow mein, and chow fun varieties. Meat-free fare arrives in the form of orange-flavored tofu and sautéed snow peas, harvested by ski instructors during slow days.
