This evening, a good friend told me about a recent visit to Fu Run (40-09 Prince St., Flushing) where said friend was subjected to the most abysmally bad behavior - in fact, the term "bad behavior" doesn't begin to describe it - by both patrons and management alike. While I'm not at liberty to go into the details, I was sufficiently shocked by what I was told (and let me tell you, I don't shock easily) that I feel I must rescind any past recommendations that anyone patronize this establishment.
Anyway, the old chef is now at the excellent new Lao Dong Bei (44-09 Kissena Blvd., Flushing 11355, 718-539-4100). I haven't blogged about this place yet, but plan to soon. In the meantime you can read a bit about it on Joe DiStefano's wonderful new website, Chopsticks and Marrow.
