    Yes...Wu Liang Ye. I believe it's on 48th between 5th and 6th. Fantastic!

      wu liang ye is a great suggestion. another option is Our Place on W55 near Lexington. this is a bit more commonplace chinese but very good.

        Absolutely WLY, and you can't get any closer.

          Ate at WLY the other day after looking at the tree (nice one this year). Had a dish off the specials menu called "steamed spareribs with roast spice rice and sichuan peppers" (or something like that). What came out was a large hemisphere of very small grain rice (almost like a rice couscous) studded with bite sized pieces of steamed spare ribs (bone in). The spicing was complex and completely delicious - it wasn't quite like any dish I've had before. The dan-dan noodles we started with were great, as always.

          Fact is, outside of Chinatown there aren't many restaurants like WLY in Manhattan, especially in midtown. Go there!
