A friend of mine in Manhattan is getting hitched next spring, and he asked me if I knew of any good Chinese banquet halls, either in Manhattan or the outer boroughs. I believe he's actually looking for a place for the rehearsal dinner, not the actual wedding reception, so I doubt he's gonna need a room on the scale of Jing Fong's, etc. I've been on the Left Coast for the past year, and my recollection of NYC joints has been fading fast (Viva San Gabriel Valley!!), so I pose the question to the people I know will have the answers, the Chowhounders!!
