I wasn't even going to respond since many of the recent comments were aimed at me, but I feel I should defend myself a little since I like these boards and I plan to keep contributing to them.

I said, in my opinion (to which I believe I'm entitled), that ON THE WHOLE, I think the Chinese food is better in SF. That doesn't mean there isn't good Chinese in NY. I've been to Shun Lee Palace. It was good, but for $20 a dish, I didn't feel it was the greatest value for what it was. That's just my opinion and you have yours and that's what this board is about.

There are great food things in NY that we can't even get in SF (right down to a piping hot egg and cheese sandwich on a kaiser roll!) and vice versa. I know NYers can be sensitive when you imply that something might be better somewhere else . And even though you can get good Chinese food in NY, being from SF, I would recommend trying something else that you maybe can't get as easily as you can at home. Isn't that the fun of traveling? Again, just my opinion, not a directive.

Obviously, in the end, Nina will do what she wants and it will be great, regardless of what some of us say, because she'll be in NYC on NYE having a great time!

Can't we all just be friends, jeez!

Just wanted to mention that if money is no object, Asiate at 80 Columbus Circle, at 60th Street, on the 35th Floor of the new Time Warner building (in the lobby of the new Mandarin Oriental Hotel) is another alternative and what I'd consider for NYE. It's a NY experience you can't replicate elsewhere.

I like Shun Lee a lot, but if you're coming to NY, why not have something you can't have in SF, whether it's a venue, a view etc.? If Asiate is too pricey, consider one of the other places in the Time Warner building or TAO or Rain.

acwsf, don't get me wrong, I agree with your comment that on the whole, the Chinese food in SF probably is better. But, I found your comment, " won't find any chinese food that matches what you can get on the west coast" to be ludicrous. I've had many wonderful meals in SF Chinese restaurants, but I've also had equally topnotch food at Shun Lee Palace and Shun Lee West. And, you cannot beat their service!
And, if Nina wants to eat Chinese food in New York on New Year's Eve, why not?
