Gourmet fare in Fresno

  • k

Will be in Fresno for a weekend in the middle of October with my wife. I would appreciate suggestions for Chinese, steak, Mexican food. Thank you!

  1. If you like dim sum, try Imperial Gardens, on Blackstone, near Herndon. Also, Echo, for dinner, has received wonderful reviews, although I have never tried it.

      Yes, have been to Echo, it really is awefully good. Get reservations. Also, there is a very good chinese place that I am trying to remember the name of . . . very large place . . . perhaps Shanghai Garden? Shanghai something, anyway. On Blackstone (as is everything) near White, or maybe a block or two north, west side of the street, in a nice little strip mall with Gold's Gym. It is in the Southwest corner of the strip.

        Echo is good for dinner but pretty skimpy for lunch.
        Veni Vidi Vici is great - also Upstairs Downtown (new).
        I think the long time owners of the Shanghai sold it as they're building a new place out north.
