Flushing or Sunset Park for Chinese New Year?

Any suggestions which is the better hood for the celebrations?

  1. FLushing has better food by far.

    1. Flushing by far. Flushing caters to a larger, more affluent community and the quality of restaurants reflects this.

      1. Absolutely Flushing, but if you're planning on dinner make sure you have a reservation. It's also a bigger, more bustling neighborhood, so I'm sure there's more in the way of street celebration.

        My top Flushing restaurant picks are:

        Cantonese: Imperial Palace (my current favorite Chinese restaurant in NYC)
        Hunan: Hunan House
        Sichuan: a dead heat between Spicy & Tasty & Little Pepper

          I will be celebrating Chinese New Year at Hunan House, highly recommended, the best Hunan restaurant in New York.

        2. Not only is Flushing better, but there's also a wider variety of regional cuisines.
