Takeout for sixty in Chinatown
I am familiar with many Chinatown restaurants. Are there any that would be especially good at handling an office-party (takeout for sixty)? Has anyone tried something like this with one of the Shanghai restaurants (Joe's, etc.)? Is this a fools errand, destined to create gallons of glop?
He Win Lai (spelling) on Pell often does large parties in the restaurant- maybe they do take out.
There's the place on Mott just north of Canal that is mainly a wedding hall. I forget the name, but friends who have been to functions there tell me the food was good. I wonder if they cater out. It's Hong Kong style, and I think you'd have better luck with large places of that style than Shanghai places.

does catering at a cheap price. Its that place that gives you a mountain of rice, 4 dishes, and a really salty soup for $4. I would just beware what I'm ordering because some of the dishes I don't think are high quality, but it depends on what you order.
