I really wanted to try a Chinese New Year banquet this year but was too slow on the uptake and have no reservations. *sigh*
So, I want to be ready next year. Anyone have recommendations for Washington-area restaurants that offer special Chinese New Year menus? (And in the Washington area, should I expect the event to be a dim-sum thing, or a more coursed-out meal? An earlier thread seemed to imply the former, but I've only been to one here in Washington so I don't know.) Finally, should I make reservations far in advance? And assume it's best sampled as part of a big group - or does it matter?
Many thanks for any tips.
