  1. This is how they selected them:

    "Based on interviews with chefs and Chinese restaurant associations, surveys of local food writers and polls, and our own experience, here are the 50 best Chinese restaurants in the country, arranged by state."

    My gut feeling is that they were trying to find the "best" Chinese restaurants in different parts of the US. If they were to choose the absolute best, I would guess there would be far more restaurants from California on the list.
