Once I saw a sign saying that there are 18,376 restaurants in New York City. Now who is going to challenge the accuracy of that number?
Every month I spend an average of four to five days in the Big Apple, and because of that I've have the opportunity to experience a large number of these restaurants over the years.
I'm often asked what my favorite NYC restaurant is, and while I have about a dozen places that I like to frequent, I do have a favorite: Chin Chin. Obviously, this is not an Italian restaurant.
Being a fan of Chinese cuisine and an expert on China (I spent a month China and ate Italian every chance I got), I highly encourage you to visit Chin Chin the next time you take a trip to New York.
And if you trust my judgment, you'll seek out Jimmy Chin while you're there and ask him for his signature dish: the Grand Marnier Shrimp. You won't find this one on the menu, so be sure to let Jimmy know that Pat sent you!
