New Yorkers love their Szechuan, and Szechuan Gourmet's midtown branch (an offshoot of a hole-in-the-wall in Queens) may be the most constantly packed of the many Manhattan eateries specializing in fiery Chinese cuisine. That's due to the fact that the restaurant offers the perfect mix of chile burn and Szechuan peppercorn numbness—the ma la at the core of great Szechuan cooking. The dishes, of a generally higher caliber than at the Manhattan competition, include exceptional plump dumplings in sweet and spicy chile oil; fresh pork tossed with a beautifully balanced mix of salty black beans, green chile, and leeks; and enough daredevil dishes—duck tongues and fried frogs and hot fish-head soup—to keep serious chowhounds busy for weeks.—Jay Cheshes

Open Mondays through Fridays 11:30 am to 9:30 pm, Saturdays and Sundays noon to 9:30 pm.
