I chose this restaurant because I knew the name from years ago, Zagat still had a good rating for them & they were close to our hotel. I should have listened to my brother who goes to NY on business & said "It's not like it used to be." We liked our appetizer - a chicken dish in lettuce leaves but unfortunately I ate a rancid pine nut and lost my taste for the dish. For our entrees we ordered some of our standard chinese favorites: orange beef, spicy eggplant & ribs. The orange beef was too tough to eat. The spicy eggplant had very little flavor & was boring & the ribs were dry and tough. We also ordered a chicken dish and it was not memorable - I couldn't even tell you what vegetables were in it, sauce, etc. That is not like me I usually remember everything. While eating, our daughter pointed out a bug crawling down the wooden area beside me. My husband tried to take it away in his napkin without being noticed, but yuck. Our waiter was nice and the atmosphere very pleasant but we were extremely disappointed in our meal. Perhaps they were just having an off night, but I used to live in NY & know there are so many other places that consistently serve great food.
