Best Chinese (any style) nearest 22nd and 8th, preferably open 'till midnight on Saturdays?

    Grand Sichuan on 24th and 9th. However, it closes at 11. And for Saturday night, you had better get reservations, because it's insanely crowded.

      I'll second GSH on 24th and 8th. For awhile I thought they were slipping - some of the food there wasn't top notch, but 2 recent visits produced excellent meals. On the down side the place is crazy busy and the atmosphere isn't the best.

        Third GSI. It's on 9th, though, not 8th. Grand Sichuan International. And yes, it's extremely crowded.

          Oops. Thanks for the correction.

          echo your assessment; i've had a bunch of lackluster meals there, but my most recent was really excellent.

          You don't like Grand Sichuan?

            its alright. i have been there 2 or 3 times and had delivery a few times, for all the board chatter it gets i was not overly impressed. i think home on 8th is better
