Ping is Hong Kong's most famous expatriate chef, and this is his third New York outpost, part of a trend that's remaking Chinatown from within its oldest quarter. Crackerjack specialties that persist from the first branch on East Broadway include X.O. oysters, two-bite doozies loaded with hot, fishy relish, and "spinach with mixed seafood soup," configured as a yin-yang. Our favorite dish, though, is Ping lobster;lightly breaded, fried, inundated with a French shallot sauce, and poised on a bed of braised egg noodles that are more like fettucine than lo mein.
