Anyone know of a great Chinese hotpot restaurant??

I used to frequent one in LA where the staff poured a flavorful broth into the hotpot and my family and I would gather up vegetables, meats, seafood and tofu (buffet style) to simmer into the pot. I think there was a spicy dipping sauce to accompany the cooked food. Does anyone know a place like this in NYC?

    Decent Sichuan-style hotpot can be found in Manhattan (the Grand Sichuan branch on the east side of Lexington between 33 and 34th has it. the hot pot / huo guo menu is a separate menu). For other regional styles of hotpot / huoguo such as Mongolian and Shanghai, you may have to venture to Flushing:

      the chinatown branch of Grand Sichuan has real hotpot, but i wouldnt say its good, its okay. But it would work in a fix

        Thanks Lau. That's probably the closest thing out there. I just read about that one.

        If you mean the "Mongolian" style rather than shabu shabu, you should check the Outer Boroughs board.
