MANHATTAN CHINATOWN--any place that rivals Flushing's best?

erica | Sep 5, 201002:47 PM     51

Out of town friends (Chinese novices) will be coming to the city and will likely refuse to travel to Flushing. Is there anyplace I can take them for Cantonese or Shanghai food in Chinatown?

Can I get an update, for example, on the current scene at places like Fuleen (I've not been); the former Cantoon Garden (had a good meal there but was accompanied by a regular who will not be joining us this time); the various Shanghai places (Anything better than Shanghai Cafe on Mott??)??

I've not been to Ping's in years--any good? Congee Village on Allen??

Please help me show my non-adventurous friends to a good meal in Manhattan...good seafood/barbecue meats are a must.. (Unfortunately, the Sichaun places in the 30s are out for this group..)
