Sometimes, after a long week, there's nothing better than greasy Chinese takeout—especially when it's Chinese New Year. In the name of celebration, try washing down your stir-fry and noodles with a glass of Champagne this Saturday, Jan. 28.

Here, she and co-founder Marian Cheng give us three recommendations to go with your favorite dishes.
