Being in Manhattan affords the rare opportunity of actually looking forward to jury duty, as an excuse to cruise Chinatown more than usual. So I was beginning by cruising previous Chowhound postings, and an interesting-sounding one from Pat Hammond from January 2, 2002 seems to have de-linked itself. Does anyone recall this?
Other suggestions are welcome as well. I'm particularly interested in Chinese (rather than Thai; I know about the 2-3 closest Thai places) in the south-west part of Chinatown, so I can spend less time walking and more time eating.
