Last minute Grand Sichuan advice needed

I usually go to the one on 24th and 9th. It's snowing and I see that there is one on 34th - a few blocks from my hotel.

Will I be disappointed going to this one? I'm craving the sour green beans and soup dumplings (not the best in the city, I know...but good enough for this LA native on a cold night)

Thanks in advance

  1. I've never been to the 34th St Grand Sichuan, but you may be dissapointed since it is not part of the same group that runs GS on 24th St. The only NYC outposts run by that family are on 24th, St Marks, and 7th Ave S. Hope this helps...

    1. I frequented the 34th St. Grand Sichuan last April-June when I was in the area a lot. I found the food there very good, except for the oyster cold dish, which I'd strongly advise you to avoid. The 24th St. location is the best, overall (caveat that I haven't been to the 7th Av. S. location), but many of the dishes at 34th St. are excellent.

      You'd have the best experience at Szechuan Gourmet on 39th St. between 5th and 6th, though.
