Jai Yun - How's it standing up?

Peter Sweitzer | Aug 27, 200212:20 AM     3

I have read the previous threads on Jai Yun. But now I'm deciding whether to go or not. I don't mind spending $50-60 on a meal at either a tiny, slightly grungy Chinese cafe (as long as the food is very good) or at a luxurious, pretentious French restaurant (once again, as long as the food is very good). Now, is the meal (prixe-fixe i presume) very good still or have prices gone up tremendously while quality has taken an extreme nose dive?

A couple things I wasn't aware of from the previous posts, is it possible to go here as a solo diner, or is necessary to go as a group? Also, if there is no menu are there possible choices within the prixe-fixe context (like if one is allergic or dislike say pork or sea cucumbers)? Does Jai Yun serve wine or beers, or is it specifically BYOB? Lastly, what is the current going rate for the meal there per person? And not that I mind it, but how is the atmosphere there as far as decor and service and such? I almost forget, is there desserts served there and if not where can one go in the vicinity to finish off with some dessert?Thanks in advance. Any info and opinions would be greatly appreciated.
