Spicy fish slices for two. This is awesome.
This is an excellent local neighborhood Szechuan Chinese restaurant with a twist-- the chef also has a specialization in one particular subarea of Szechuan and the spicing for those dishes is a little different than mainstream Szechuan and really good!! All regular Szechuan (and other) Chinese dishes also available and also really good. An excellent choice if you are going to a concert at the Beacon Theatre or staying at the Beacon Hotel (it is just behind them)
Soup dumplings as good as Joe's Shanghai. Minus the ridiculous wait!!
Reliable Sichuan dishes and Cantonese classics at the Upper West Side branch of this mini chain.
