Looking for great Chinese at various budget levels from Chinese food experts who know the authentic cuisine (not the Americanized versions). I have had hits or misses in NY taking CHinese friends to dinner. Some hits:
A Fan Ti: Flushing muslim chinese restaurant with great lamb dishes.
Evergreen; Low cost Flushing Shanghaineses with okay xiao lung bao.
Duen Chen: Flushing seafood restaurant Cantonese style.
Looking for something really great. Lau has a great blog for this and has some great picks, but I need something to take about 20 people that is a bit upscale.
