Does anyone know the dress code for the Peking duck house, E. 53red St NYC. Or if these isn't any, what is appropriate?

  1. i'd say as long as you avoid tank tops or t-shirts and shorts, you'll be fine. i've gone in jeans with a nice top and not felt out of place.

    1. Eaten there a couple of times in shorts, sandals and collar-less t-shirts and both times were served the same as any other non-Chinatown Chinese restaurant in the city. No complaints with the service.

      1. As long as you don't stroll in there nude you should be fine

        1. No shirt, no service.

              The manager/greeter/maitre'd sometimes wear a suit/tuxedo. Don't let that throw you off.

          2. I've eaten there with a sports jacket for business and have gone in golf shirt and jeans. No problem either way. Because of its location you will see a lot of suits there, but it won't be a problem, they will take your money even if you are in jeans
