Fortune Chinese Seafood Restaurant open

Fortune is the new restaurant in the former Kim Son location at the Chinatown Center. The menu seems to embrace authentic Cantonese dishes as well as other favorites including American Chinese standards. For example, a very good fragrantly peppery hot-and-sour soup preceded a lunch portion of the best salt-and-pepper shrimp I've had in town in years. They were very lightly battered. The shells were so thin and crisp, you could eat the entire shrimp from head to tail. They were not oily, not too salty, no trace of coconut anything. It would have been nice to use some black and/or white pepper for spice instead of relying on jalapeno.

The menu includes some high-dollar "wedding banquet" items, like shark's fin soup.
At the listed prices ($40-$50 per serving), I would assume that it's the real deal.
