Blagden Alley’s Hong Kong-inspired eatery, Tiger Fork, will host a week-long celebration to ring in the Chinese New Year from January 20-26.
To bring good luck in the New Year, the convivial night market — plus all-day party on Saturday, January 25th — will feature symbolic food specials, ceremonial performances and traditional festivities like lion dancers and kung fu demonstrations.
All week, Chef de Cuisine Jong Son will serve a special à la carte menu of traditional Cantonese dishes, each representing a specific virtue. After dining, guests will receive a traditional red envelope with their checks, symbolizing good wishes and luck for the new year ahead.
And on Saturday, January 25 — the official day of the Chinese New Year — Tiger Fork will host a day-long celebration from 11am to midnight, serving barbecued meats, chili wontons, spicy noodles, bubble waffles and other specialties. From 7pm to 8:30pm, Chinese lion dancers from Tai Yim Kung Fu will perform for guests in the dining room and just outside the restaurant in historic Blagden Alley.
Tiger Fork’s Chinese New Year celebration is free to attend and open to the public.
