At some point, every country builds a Great Wall to keep the secret of its cuisine from spreading to foreign nations, only to find that the real wall is around its heart. Open wide for this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Chinese Dinner Fare for Two
The dinner menu includes an old-fashioned pot-sticker starter ($7.50 for six), a caterpillar sushi roll with smoked eel, crabstick, and avocado ($8.50), and entrees such as homestyle lamb with basil ($18), and Chilean sea bass with black-bean sauce ($20.50).
Square on Square
Through a red crosshatched ceiling, a luminescent panel casts a glow on Square on Square's first floor, which flaunts rich wood paneling and vibrant flower paintings. Past an open foyer surrounded by two stories of windows, diners climb the stairs to a second level, where floral artwork pops against tomato-red walls.
To pair with these decorative flourishes, chefs line wooden tables with artfully wrapped sushi and traditional entrees accented by fresh bursts of orange rind, mango, and ginger. While noshing on an appetizer of old-fashioned pot stickers, diners can reminisce about other sentimental snacks, such as Pez and copper-flavored pennies, as servers stream from the kitchen with their forearms stacked with classic main courses of peking duck, orange beef, or shrimp in black-bean sauce.
