Had dinner at Grand Sichuan International at the 24th st branch at 229, 9th Ave (620-5200) a couple of nights ago. Three of us shared 4 mains: smoked tea duck, baby bok choy with garlic (special), shrimp with black bean sauce, beef fillets with chile. All were delicious. We got there around 8, and were seated immediately. However, there was quite a line when we left.
This is a spin off from a previous lengthy thread on this board last month.
(I'd have posted there but the thread got a bit confusing.)
