I don't have anything specific for Chinatown, but I really enjoyed Wu Liang Ye on W. 48th St. Had some great cold Szechuan noodles, as well as razor clam!

[quote]The Modern in NYC. Stunning. [/quote]
Well, I just had lunch there 4 weeks ago - to me, the only thing stunning was the view into the sculpture garden.
It was definitely deserving of the word "fadoodely", and both of us walked out hungry. The amuse bouches were the size of a dime - I ...

The first sign of a nasty gumbo is seeing those oily grease bubbles at the top. One time, I had some at Bozo's like that, and the roux...

I've been to Kanno before, but the only thing I've tried beyond the basic stuff was the Elvis Roll, which was awesome.

Maybe you could dine at the other place that Tommy K. owns in the same town (I forget the name), and then maybe sweet talk the staff into seeing what they could do?
Since you'll be there for a month, that's doable....
