My father has a special request on his upcoming visit to the city: baby eel at a chinese restaurant. He lived in SoHo in the 70s and ate out mostly in chinatown, so this is probably an old favorite.
The only trouble is I'm having a hard time finding it on menus. I see that Tang Pavilion has baby eel as a cold appetizer, so we'll probably head there. But if anyone has seen it elsewhere, I'm all ears.
