We will be 10 people, kids and adults, with one not-too-picky vegetarian. Want to be able to sit at a big round table. Bonus points for a place that serves decent peking duck, with either GOOD pancakes (which means Peking Duck House is out) or the steamed buns.
This group of people really loves good executions of "old-school" style cantonese dishes. Was thinking Oriental Garden, but haven't been in a few years and wasn't sure it was still good. Any other places to recommend? Trying to stay away from some of the sichuan places, as we eat that a lot, and I want something a little different for this meal.
I know chefs/cooks come and go and some of these places can go from good to bad to good again in a year or so. So looking for the latest news on good dining of this type in Manhattan.
ps. If there is a place that serves decent peking duck and also some spicy dishes, that would be great, too.
