I don’t think there’s a “New York Style” of Chinese food. Just that I (and Little Pianola) haven’t been lucky enough to find a Chicago restaurant that whupped up the grub well enough to satisfy a San Franciscan or a New Yorker. Next trip I make out to the Windy City, I promise to ask you for recommendations.

Don’t think I’m trying to undermine your civic pride....Mexican food in NYC was utter shit all through the eighties and nineties, until some actual Mexicans decided to move here. Meanwhile, Chi had excellent family style Mexican joints in the Pilsen neighborhood, and also Rick Bayless. It happens.
