Chinese Caterer NYC June 8th rehearsal dinner

HELP!!
I had contracted with Xing Restaurant last November to cater my son's wedding rehearsal dinner on June 8th at the Rectory Hall of Church of Our Saviour at 38th and Park.
Two weeks ago I was infomed the restaurant was going out of business. They gave me the name of their chef and I have worked with him for the last two weeks with him indicating he was at a new restaurant and could still handle the event.

THIS MORNING I received an email saying he was being transferred to another restaurant which was out of town.
I have relied on these representations and have paid a non refundable deposit on the hall, had invitations printed, and have purchased chinese theme decorations.

I am going to have about 40 people at the rehearsal dinner.
My son and fiance wanted a chinese theme - be a little more relaxed than the very formal wedding the next day.

Is there anyone there who can cater who knows a GOOD CHINESE RESTAURANT that might be able to deliver food and I could hire waitstaff?
This is going to be a buffet at 7pm.

I was providing the wine/champagne privately.
Any info would be appreciated as I live in Tampa Florida and prior to the wedding I have two sons graduating from college. Thus, my time is extremely limited.
Thanks.
Sharon
