The Myth of Chinatown

New, 2 comments

Adam Platt thinks that the Chinatown dining scene has lost its luster: "The old warhorse establishments along Mott Street tend to work fine for a quick fix of char siu or roast duck over rice, but if you sit down for an actual meal, chances are you'll soon find yourself buried under a familiar tsunami of salty soups, leaden dumplings, and clammy, glutinous sauces." A meal at Shanghai Cafe Deluxe doesn't change his mind. [GS/NYM]
