smaller Chinatown banquet
I'm posting for a friend who doesn't have internet access. She wants to have a banquet for around 25 people, and since this is significantly smaller than the 75 under "Chinatown banquet" I'm starting another thread. So: Nice, Golden Unicorn, Great Shanghai, Fuleen? Others? Suggestions for what to ask for? All help much appreciated.
I've arranged two banquets at Golden
Unicorn (both around 30 people) and people still talk
about the food. They have the ability to section
off the and create smaller rooms for your party.
I also just gave a banquet for the
Chinese consul at the Evergreen, a
Shanghai place located at 10 East 38th.
Food and service were excellent.
Some other possibilities for a smallish (2-3 table)
banquet could be 20 Mott, Harmony Palace (whenever
they are not closed for a big wedding bash), Sun
Golden Island and,if-its-still-there-and-the-people-
like-duck, the Peking Duck House. I havent been to the
last for over 10 years, but a banquet including the
multi-course presentation of duck can be mighty
impressive. Maybe someone can recommend a better
place for duck these days, if that is an interest.
Since the banquet format is a well-accepted one
throughout the better restaurants in Chinatown, you
may simply want to ask about the possibilities for one
at your favorite restaurants - most have set menus at
different price levels which you can negotiate to suit
