Chinese New Year

Lise | Jan 12, 200206:53 PM

Chinese New Year is approaching and I was reminded of the banquets my grandmother used to host to open the new year. The menus included all the foods whose names were homonyms for words related to fortune: e.g. round foods like scallops or abalone to symbolize money, oysters for goodness, seaweed for fortune, whole fish for abundance, etc. Any recommendation for a restaurant in SF that has good menus--excellent food with the appropriate symbolism-- for a new year banquet? Thanks, and an early GongXiFaCai/Gung Hay Faat Choy to all!
