Recommendations for Chinese/Lunar New Year dinner

Hi all,

Long-time Seattle area resident who just moved back to the area after spending the past few years living out of state. I'm looking for suggestions on restaurants that serve a special Chinese/Lunar New Year dinner.

Open to all ideas but hoping for someplace cheap or moderately priced that would be good for a group of about six people.

I searched for previous threads and didn't see anything, though I apologize if I missed something.

Thank you very much for your help!

  1. A hidden gem in the ID is Honey Court Seafood Restaurant at 516 Maynard.

    A Cantonese client and I closed the place this morning at 1:30AM. The daily special bitter melon and carrot soup, chopped, fried "young chicken" (pre-adolescent chicks), tea-smoked squab, oyster chicken over steamed pea vines, and mango custard were all excellent. My client, a restauranteur, claims Honey Court is the best Cantonese south of Van.

      kaleokahu, thank you so much for replying, and please pardon my delayed response. I used to go to Honey Court fairly often while in college several years ago. Glad to hear it still serves good food! I'll have to give it a try. Thanks again, really appreciate your help.
