While there are plenty of Sichuan restaurants in Chinatown, the new-
ish Chinese Sichuan Cuisine is among the best. Dishes are fresh, and
service is both friendly and efficient - even if you only communicate
by pointing at items on the menu. Try the hot pot or ma po tofu
during the winter months, when you can share the warm and fragrant
dishes with a table of hungry friends. Hot and spicy shrimp isn't as
spicy as the menu would lead you to believe, but it and the cumin lamb
are two of the can't-miss dishes here. Lunch portions are huge and
cheap, as are the plates the waitresses will happily heap with items
off the convenient Sichuan snack cart near the front of the restaurant.
