I read recently a restaurant opened on Park Ave.
Anyone with any comments?

    Not sure why my original post was deleted. I assume you are referring to Zhongshan, which opened up in the space formerly occupied by Chinatown Cafe on Park Ave.

    See this thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/609461 which includes my review. I found it ok/passable. Not really something to get excited about.

      I agree that you can get miles better food is you are willing to drive to Rockville or Falls Church. I -will- challenge you to find better in Baltimore City (and I know that's not saying much). I thoroughly enjoyed my Siu Mai, Sesame Balls and Pork Dumplings, even though they did not match some of the stuff I have had in other cities (I have had some of the best in places like Vancouver and Toronto, FWIW).

      Is Asian Court the place tha used to be Oriental Manor?
      And I, too wonder, why my original post was deleted.

        Yes, Asian Court was Oriental Manor. They seem to have improved lately, last two visits were pretty good for dim sum, and in the evening, the non-Westernized food was great, with few other customers.

      Thanks, I will have to see if they have improved in the past several months.
