Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month - May

  Chai (353 West 46th Street

May is celebrating the rich culture of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and you can't celebrate this month without thinking about the delicious food that's part of this community. 

Along with the Times Square Alliance here are a few AAPI-owned businesses and restaurants, in the district, that have opened during the pandemic or are scheduled to open, in the upcoming year, along with some neighborhood favorites.

·         Chai (353 West 46th Street) –  Opened in September 2021, Chai serves authentic Beijing cuisine, inheriting cooking techniques of the court cuisine of the Qing Dynasty including the Peking Roast Duck, Zha Jiang Noodles, Aiwowo, and more. @Chai.NYC 

·         Four Four South Village (368 West 46th Street) – Opening their Times Square location in October 2021 with another location in Flushing, Queens, and the East Village, Four Four is named after Taiwan’s first military-dependent village. Four’s Taiwanese Beef Noodles are a delicacy that originated from these villages and are the restaurant's signature dish, appearing on the menu in multiple combinations — but you can also get other Taiwanese specialties, including soups, rice dishes, and luwei (braised foods).

·         Teriyaki R Us (150 West 49th Street) – Opened in November 2021, Teriyaki R Us is a fast-casual that offers chicken, beef, shrimp, and tofu teriyaki at reasonable prices, along with ramen, dumplings, and other snacks.

·         Urban Hawker Market (130 West 50th Street) – Opening this summer 2022 and as a woman-co-owned indoor market, Urban Hawker Market will feature 17 heritage street food hawker stalls echoing the best of Singapore hawker food culture. It is the only street food culture to receive a UNESCO nod in 2020. Signature dishes will include Laksa, Chicken Rice, Chilli Crabs, Roti Prata, Satay, Kaya Toast, half-boiled eggs with local kopi, and more. Follow them on Instagram @UrbanHawker and Facebook.

·         Natsumi (226 West 50th Street) – As a woman-owned business and popular sushi spot in Times Square, Natsumi features a Japanese-Italian fusion menu with a selection of sushi, infused sakes, and modern Japanese fare in a sleek venue with booths, sushi bar, and an adjacent lounge. @NatsumiNYC
