Anything in particular worth ordering here? Off-menu items? I'm going to a wine dinner here in a couple of weeks. It would be nice if the food lived up to the wines, which should be outstanding (champagne, white burgs, German rieslings...). So help me out... I don't think the guy who is organizing it knows anything about Chinese cuisine.
I don't think I've actually ever been to RE for dinner, although >6 years ago I used to eat there occasionally for lunch when I worked in Central Sq. The only dish I can actually remember was a sweet & sour chicken stuffed with diced water chestnuts. Now, as a matter of principle, I never order anything sweet & sour, but there was something about the crunchy surprise hidden in the middle that made at least this dish interesting.
