My wife and I are leaving in the morning for our first trip to New York. We're active Chicago Chowhounds, and have had the best our Chinatown offers(mainly Szechuan and Singapore style), but it's pretty small. We're adventurous and like to try different and unusual menu items.
Any suggestions for the best authentic Chinese that New York can offer? We're staying on 23rd St., if that helps narrow the area down.
We sincerely appreciate any suggestions you may offer.
