Chinese New Year?

Hello Hounds,

I'm wondering if you know any Chinese restaurants doing specials for the Chinese New Year.

I'm particularly thinking about the rice cakes - nián-gāo. My friend's family eats it dipped in egg batter and pan-fried.

Thanks for the tip!

          Their menu looks absolutely terrible. Limited and Americanized fare only.

          Edit: I would inquire to see what the special menu is at Little Szechuan instead.
