Chinatown recommendations

Going to Chinatown today and want some new recommendations. We usually go to New Green Bo or Awah. So we are ready from something new.

    1. Where did you end up going? Chatham Square Restaurant is great for dim sum. Also, check out Ping's on Mott Street for fabulous seafood--fresh crispy golden Dungeness crab dressed with a flurry of crunchy fried garlic and steamed head-on prawns with roe.

        We wound up at 456 at 69 Mott Street, which was good to very good, but not great. I also thought it was expensive (relative to Chinatown). I still think that Nice Green Bo is better but the ambiance is not there.
