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

        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.

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