(A note from Melanie on the Chicken -- pictured below -- "After having this dish out here 3 years ago, Jim Leff has continued to ask Cantonese kitchens in NY to make it for him for any amount of money they'll charge. So far, no takers. One owner said he could ask the chef to make it, but then he'd quit.")
