Skip Hunan Ritz in Thornwood

Josh Mittleman | Apr 27, 199911:55 AM     6

I'd heard good things about Hunan Ritz in the Rose Hill
Shopping Plaza on Kensico Ave. in Thornwood and I
hadn't been there for years, so we gave it a try last
night. It was a disappointment.

The food was OK. The best dish was an appetizer of
steamed crab legs, which were delicious but showed no
evidence of _Chinese_ cuisine. They were served plain
with clarified butter. Hot and sour soup was pretty
good, unusually beefy with lots of goodies,
surprisingly including inoki mushrooms. Their special
five-flavor duck was unexciting.

If you're in this area and want Chinese, I prefer the
place on 141 a few blocks south of the intersection
with Kensico Ave. It just changed its name to Pacific
something; I can't recall what.
