Ping's Restaurant Review

: In the past, those who had gone to New York's Chinatown hoping to be wowed by culinary exotica and intense Chinese flavors have been uniformly disappointed, as many Chinatown restaurants tend to cater more to tourists or basic tastes than to adventurous foodies. Luckily, the past few years have seen numerous openings of serious Chinese restaurants, the most impressive of which is Ping's. An offshoot of the original in Queens, Ping's also specializes in seafood. Lobster served in the shell with a garlic-ginger sauce and pan-fried noodles is superb as are fragrant whole fish and shrimp served in the shell. Much of the menu is not for the tame---consider braised duck's tongues, jellyfish, and abalone---but is perfect for those who love to experiment. Also located at 20 E. Broadway, 212-965-0808, and in Queens at 83-02 Queens Blvd., Elmhurst, 718-396-1238.
