Good Chinese food in Staten Island...anywhere?!

Chef Hong's on Amboy Road in Tottenville is still good. His original restaurant in St. George no longer deserves to bear his name,

Chow-Worthy Food Near Wagner College?

I'll second Dosa Garden, some of the best Indian I've ever had. Not exactly close to Wagner, but they deliver. Indian Clove isn't bad either, but Dosa is tops.
Sanrasa, a Sri Lankan place on Bay Street, is also very good.
I agree with the Roadhouse rec too, that's definitely the best food close to Wagner.
The best pizza on SI is Denino's on Port Richmond Avenue. Not near the school, but worth the trip. Stop at Ralph's for Italian Ices across the street for dessert and you'll then be allowed to call yourself an Islander. For delivery, try Papa Rey's on Victory or Bari's on Bay Street, both make a nice pie.

Palladio & Staunton Grocery?

We'll be staying in Massanutten Resort for a week and will mostly do our own cooking, but want a few special nights out.
We'll be in Staunton one night for Shakespeare and I'm intriqued by the Staunton Grocery. It's gotten a few kind words here but always like to hear the most recent take.
And I can't find very many mentions of Palladio at the Barboursville Vineyards on the board. Was thinking of going there after touring Monticello. It's a pricey place and elsewhere I find highly mixed reviews, but they're also mostly 2-3 years old. Anyone been recently? I don't mind dropping the $$$$ if it's worth it, but if it's not, would rather spend elsewhere.
If you don't recommend one or both of those, where would you go in the Shenandoah Valley &/or Charlottesville?
