I hope this hasn't been discussed at length recently, I searched and scrolled down the list but couldn't find anything recent.
Is Flushing still the mecca for good Chinese food? Or as Jim pointed out in a post a year or two back, is Elmhurst really IT now? A few weeks from now some foodie friends are coming to visit me from Chicago and we're meeting their old CIA instructor out in Flushing for lunch, and I'm supposed to find a place. I love eating good food with people who really enjoy it and can spend all of the meal talking about the dishes they are eating, so I'm really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I don't know of any restaurants in Flushing and really want one that will serve for lots of good conversation! Any suggestions on the "best" Chinese restaurant in Flushing? Are there restaurant's in Elmhurst that are much better?
