I am on jury duty and we are thinking of celebrating
our last day with a simple Chinese banquet near the
City Hall part of Chinatown (i.e. nothing on Division,
East Broadway etc..) Our preferred price is $10. I
went to Jing Foon even though I think their food is a
bit tired, because they are convenient. They
suggested eggroll, sweet and sour pork and shrimp lo
mein. When I objected they got huffy. This
experience has been repeated, right down to the menu
suggestions, with a few other places. I don't want to
get too exotic but there must be a middle ground. I
love Triple Eight, but they are too far away. Can
anyone recommend a place that can easily accommodate
about 20 people and would be a bit more adventurous.
No further east than Elizabeth Street, please.
