looking for the right venue for a chinatown meal, farewell party for a co-worker. want authentic, non-fancy food, trying to think of some choices. yeah shanghai or mr. tang comes immediately to mind, was gonna try maybe peking duck house for fancier fare, maybe new green bo would not be appropriate. if anyone has been to spicy and tasty, maybe the manhattan chinatown equivalent in terms of price, decor and quality of food.
relatively sophisticated bunch of diners, diverse backgrounds and into trying new things but I think the classics hits would be well-appreciated as well. thinking large platters, and order the banquet for 15, instead of ordering a la carte.
