Szechuan Gourmet 56 vs 39

Are these 2 virtually the same or is one better than the other. I frequent 56th but never been to 39th which is a little bit further from me. But thanks to a CitiBike membership (and subsequent weight gain) I can now make the pilgrimage to 39th

    I think 56 is more consistent though 39 has a slightly larger menu.

    There's also a new SG in UES which I haven't tried yet.

      39 can be really crowded at lunch, enough so to make 56 a dandy choice.

        I've been to 39 about 39,000 times and 56 0 times. 39 is where you go to see and be seen, 56 is more square.
