This appeared on Tom's Chat this morning:

***You killed China Star!: I went to China Star Sunday afternoon with a few friends, and they have dramatically reduced their menu, eliminating all the interesting appetizers, and most of the interesting entrees you found so tasty in your review. Apparently the restaurant had gotten so busy that they felt they had to eliminate the dishes which were most time-consuming to prepare. Even though they are no longer on the menu, we were able to get they to make Szechuan Tofu and Filet Mignon with Sour Mustard, but they refused to do the baby wontons in chili sauce.

Can you recommend any other Szechuan restaurants in the area which have similarly exciting menus? If you do, will we kill them, too?

Tom Sietsema: Oh dear! That's really unfortunate news.

Does anyone have a favorite Chinese restaurant that appeases hot heads? (That is, people who like really spicy food, not people who tend to blow their tops.)***

Any confirmations or refutations to the above? I haven't been there lately. May be worth noting that they didn't address the specials menu--was that where the dishes that Tom mentioned in his original review were originally listed?
