Searched around here, but have not come up with a current status of good, authentic Chinese restaurants suitable for a "nice meal" either in Manhattan or Queens.
Today is the mid-Autumn festival and I want to take my (very authentic Chinese!) girlfriend out for something really good. Seems every time I go to one of the old standbys (Fuleen, Amazing 66, etc,) I am disappointed. Watered down tastes for Chinese-Americans or worse.
Had some hopes when I heard Shang was opening, but that is NOT what I'm looking for.
And not really interested in anything above Houston Street if you know what I mean.
Queens if fine. Pacificana in Brooklyn was pretty good, but such a long train ride!
Would greatly appreciate suggestions, links etc.
