Grand Sichuan House

Sunset Park is generally known to be the epicenter of authentic Chinese cuisine in Brooklyn, but one of the best spots for Sichuan is perched improbably off the main commercial drag of 86th Street in Bay Ridge. Although Grand Sichuan House has been known to attract off-the-radar eaters like the Village Voice’s Robert Sietsema, more often than not, the formica-topped tables stand empty. Order up a plate of red oil-sluiced wontons, a peppercorn-laced bowl of Dan Dan noodles, or spicy specialties like braised whole fish with hot bean sauce, pork ribs with chestnuts, or the aromatic smoked tea duck, and you’ll be duly rewarded for filling out a few of those seats.
