Most authentic (preferably upscale, too) Chinese

I tried searching the boards, but seemed to be able to find only a smattering of recommendations...

Basically: what is in your opinion the Most Authentic Chinese Restaurant in Manhattan? Anywhere that also serves delicacies like (real) sharkfin, swallow's nest, abalone, sea cucumbers etc? Anywhere that has homemade 'pulled' (la) or 'shaved' (dao xiao) noodles?

I'm from Taiwan, and both my parents are from China, and I'd like to take them somewhere nice that they'll like.

(No sesame chicken, moo goo gai pan etc, please!)
