I am aware of the wealth of CH reporting on the several Chinese places in this area. Here's my situation:
Friends are in town for one night at a hotel. I was having a hard time coming up with a meeting place to dine & visit w/ them. Then they told me that a) they were totally committed to good/exciting food and b) they were staying at Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel (this is, like, right at Prince/Main/Roosevelt)......problem solved, I think.
I have never been to this area or to any of the talked about places like Spicy & Tasty, Fu Run, Szechuan Gourmet and Little Pepper.
Can I get guidance please. I need a place that will provide pleasant, unrushed, comfortable, non-mayhem dining. This is first & foremost a social occasion with friends I have not seen in 15 years. Can any of these places (or any other suggestions in the area) provide this sort of atmosphere along with good food? FWIW we will be dining on a Friday at 7.
Thanks in advance.
