BEST Chinese Dinner for an Out-Of-Town Taiwan Native?

hps | Dec 14, 2006 07:03 PM

Here is my situation - my great uncle from Taiwan is in town for two days. This is his first time in New York City and he has been waiting his whole life to come here (he's a bit on the old side and jokes that this may be his first and last time in this city).

I have been asked by my parents to choose a restaurant for dinner this Friday night (tomorrow).

Shamefully, I don't know of ANY good Chinese / Taiwanese restaurants! I'm looking for something that's not slam-your-drink-down, dirty-chopsticks, rush-rush service...something a bit nicer, classier, more impressive. It doesn't have to be extremely expensive OR extremely cheap, just someplace that would make my Taiwanese uncle feel like he's experienced a good authentic meal in New York.

Any suggestions are welcome! And thank you!
