I haven't been to this neighborhood in a few years and am looking for any good suggestions of restaurants.

    Back in November the Milwaukee/Chicago contingent did an ethnic food tour of Chicago with three excellent stops in Chinatown.  A full report and plenty of pictures can be seen here.  If you don't want to take the time to visit that post, the addresses of the places we visited are below.

        If you are looking for Dim Sum, try The Phoenix or Shiu Wah.  Phoenix has dimsum for lunch and is a large setting.  Shiu Wah is small, and more traditional. If it is a weekend,you will have to wait for a table.  The Phoenix has Saturday dim sum with carts roaming the room.   Shiu Wah is menu ordered, only.  Both are interesting choices and moderately priced.

          If you are fond of fresh seafood, try "Emperor's Choice", although most everything they prepare there is very good.
