Nice writeup of Lion Pavillion, I'll have to check it out the next time I hit queens to visit the relatives.

However I find it interesting that you say that wine does "NOT go with this cuisine". Now personally, and more often than not I tend to drink a bottle or two of Tsingtao with Chinese food, but as Melanie will probably tell you a high acid, low alcohol wine, like say an 8 or 9 percent off-dry Riesling goes fine with asian cuisine, especially spicy food like Sichuan or Thai. Sparkling Riesling, even better.

Now as to whether the wine selections at Lion Pavilion merit matching with their food, thats a different story...
