Cafe China, web site, 59 W.37th St. NY, NY, 212-213-2810 [Google | NYMag | TripAdvisor | Ylp]
Recently opened, still in “soft launch” phase. Sichuan, but fragrant rather than “knock your socks off hot.” The smoked tofu is amazing, the vegetables excellent. Beef with green chili another winner. For the subtle side of Sichuan cuisine, this is perhaps this best place I know outside of China?
