We are going to travel down to New York City with our 14-year-old daughter in the immediate future, and I am wondering about the restaurant scene. I am specifically interested in what would be the highest-regarded (casual) restaurant in Chinatown. Also, not necessarily in Chinatown, where is the best dim sum these days? What are some good stores in the Chinatown area?
We would also be interested in other wonderful but casual Asian restaurants in NYC: Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Indonesian, Thai, Vietnamese, etc., etc.
