The Best Sichuan I've Ever Found in NYC

Not even close. This is THE good place right now, and perhaps for all time.

Go and order the chengdu fish fillet soup (there's a photo in that Yelp link). It's a flat-out "10". So good that two Jews and a lapsed Catholic were groaning about not being deserving. It got very theological. I don't believe I've ever tasted more beautiful, rich-flavored soup broth than this.

Everything is full-throated ma-la, the staff are the loveliest, most sincere, open-hearted folks imaginable, the place is spotless and smells like fresh angel food cake (there is no angel food cake). It's like a dream.

And it was, naturally, completely empty. Please vote with your patronage for beautiful, triumphant food.

I'll return as soon as possible. I'm seriously considering renting a pied-à-terre down the block.
