Returned for a second visit since this restaurant's guiding spirit decamped to Chelsea, and still not sure whether its worth it. Nice people, and Im sure well give it at least one more try. On our last visit, the szechuan wonton, formerly wonderful were absolutely lackluster; this time, the beancurd specialty, while still very good and very spicy just did not have its prior brilliance. And do not at all costs order the chef's specialty boned fish with pine nuts at $14; the presentation was extremely pretty, and the fish was fried well enough but it was in a totally boring and ordinary sweet and sour sauce with a few pinenuts scattered on the top. We were totally shocked and disappointed. Another table had a whole fish with hot bean (I think) which looked like a much better bet.
