Best Chinese near MOMA?

angularbanjo Apr 23, 2009 10:30 PM

Taking the family to MOMA and then to dinner tonight. (Friday) Promised Chinatown because my son and I want to try Amazing 66. But my wife is pushing to eat closer to the museum. Any ideas for asian not far from 53rd and 5th?

    Do you like spicy food? Try Wu Liang Ye or Szechuan Gourmet. SG is possibly the best Sichuan food in Manhattan.

      Joe's Shanghai, the Chinatown classic, has a location two blocks away, on 56th btw 5th and 6th. They're touted for their soup dumplings and comprehensive Chinese-American and Chinese menu.
