Jewish Christmas Eve dilemma (Little Pepper closed!)

The last few years, I have led a band of merry Jews out to Little Pepper for Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, they are closed for renovations till April (wonder what kind of renovations they are doing? installing a fountain that spouts chili oil??)

I thought about rerouting our group to Spicy and Tasty which I used to love but stopped frequenting because I found the food better, cheaper, and more plentiful at Little Pepper. But I read on this board that it has gone slightly downhill. any opinions? Another idea was Hunan House which is good for big groups. but I've only been once.

  1. Hunan House is still fine. Or consider The Hunan Kitchen of Great Sichuan down Main St, where the old chef of the famous original Hunan House ended up. Spicy and Tasty is not a slouch either: their menu is humongous and their appetizers are still the best in class, IMHO.

        Second M&T. Why not try a different region of Chinese cuisine in the new decade?
