A large restaurant with a full bar and live music, Genghis Cohen is a place to eat New York-style Szechwan food on white tablecloths in big, black booths. One of its best-known dishes is the thick, deep-fried New York-style egg rolls, but its large menu also includes things like sizzling rice soup, Mongolian beef and shrimp with lobster sauce. Since 1990, the cozy adjoining music room, which is decorated with red lanterns and seats 60 about people, has featured singer-songwriters.
