This midtown spot has accrued quite a few regulars since opening in 1987.The appeal? Upscale Chinese cuisine that manages to impress while still feeling familiar, plus a friendly presence in owner Jimmy Chin, who is almost always in front greeting customers. The menu is a bit old-school, eschewing the current interest in regional Chinese cuisines for a more general take on Chinese food that should be familiar to anyone who grew up in America. Peking duck, lo mein, crisped orange beef; all of your favorites are here, plus a few more gourmet options such as filet mignon with mushrooms and broccoli, and lobster with ginger and scallions. Walk past Mr.Chin and find a dining room designed with crisp white lines polished red wood. Families and businessmen share plates or dig into their prix fixe dinners ($35), that is, unless someone has rented out the restaurant for a banquet. The wine list is heavy on French and Napa Valley wines and complemented with an array of classic cocktails.—Keith Wagstaff
