Happy Lunar New Year! Welcome in the Year of the Rabbit with these Chinese dishes from restaurants around Westchester.

Although it might not be the first thing you think of when you’re at the dinner table, rabbits are a sign of longevity and elegance in Chinese culture, and the Year of the Rabbit will be ushered in on January 22. Representing vigilance and deftness, rabbits are hailed as quick-witted and intelligent in China.

In this neck of the woods, a few Chinese restaurants will celebrate with special dishes heaped with meaningful and uplifting symbolism, offering those who gather to enjoy them good health, fortune, and a long and prosperous life.

Aberdeen

3 Barker Ave, White Plains; 914.288.0188

Specializing in authentic Cantonese cooking and a dim-sum cart that customers say rivals those that roll in Hong Kong, this always hopping, seafood-forward fave, located in the White Plains Marriott, is ringing in the New Year with braised lamb and other favored Chinese dishes.
