      I would go to Szechuan Gourmet. 21 W 39th Street, very authentic Szechuan, went once on a CH recommendation and really liked it.

        Agree with Szechuan Gourmet. It is WELL worth the 10 blocks. Recently had Fresh Pork Belly on Chili Leeks. Amazing. Also, once you order, the service is really fast.
