chinese food

I would love to show my teen-age daugther something really special for our one dinner in NYC. It would probably be a pre-theatre dinner. I was thinking about Buddakan. Is this a good choice? Is there a great place for Peking Duck?

Before a show, it's best to eat near the theater and there aren't any outstanding Chinese restaurants in that area (imo). It's also more fun to have a big blowout dinner on a night OTHER than when you're going to the theater. Let the show be the star attraction that night and let the restaurant/meal be the star attraction on another night.

There's a restaurant called Peking Duck House with 2 locations that's supposed to have great PD.

Thanks Whiz. We are coming to see a friend's new baby in Jersey so I feel obligated to spend 2 of the 3 nights of our trip in Jersey. So, we only have one night in NYC. What do you think about this itinerary: Arrive Friday a.m. Newark, take train in and shop in Soho area til late afternoon, then out to Jersey. Sat. spend day and evening in City - A.M. Central Park with early lunch at Boat House or possibly and Jean Georges, afternoon Fricke and H&M(we've been to MOMA and Met), early dinner then catch South Pacific. Sun. a.m. Hell's Kitchen Flea Market til noon then back to Jersey.

It sounds ok. I don't think the Hell's Kitchen flea market is what you want though. The one on Columbus Ave. on the upper west side is probably better for you.

South Pacific is actually at Lincoln Center and there's a very nice (but a bit pricey) Chinese restaurant called Shun Lee not far.

An inexpensive, fast Chinese place near Lincoln Center is Ollie's
