Fodor's Expert Review Dirty Habit

$$$ Chinatown Sophisticated

Inside trendy Hotel Monaco, Dirty Habit woos diners with a towering skylit space that until 1901 was the general post office. Homing in on globally inspired shared plates, the chef conjures up such satisfying dishes as poached hen dumplings and smoked Chilean sea bass. For dessert there's the fruity baba savarin. In warmer months, the Neoclassical courtyard is a popular spot for fruit-infused cocktails and brunch. Year-round, the lively bar inside attracts scenesters.
