Any exceptional Chinese restaurants in or near Chinatown?

My wife and I will be visiting Chicago in mid-July and will be in the Chinatown area. Are there any restaurants of the quality in San Francisco's Chinatown?

Staying at THEhotel in Vegas next month for work--Where to dine?

Just returned from Vegas. THEHotel is part of Mandalay Bay, and has plenty of fine dining options. Aureole (Charlie Palmer's) is excellent, with it's famous wine tower and French/European style food. My personal favorite is Rumjungle, which features Brazilian cuisine, meat-on-skewers, and other specialties. For late-night visitors, the place becomes a night club. The new, highly touted City Center just opened, just a short distance North of Mandalay Bay, with four hotels, condos, and Crystal, an upscale shopping mall. Many of the shops have not opened yet, but it's worth a look. We dined in the new Mandarin Oriental hotel. Their signature restaurant is Twist, on the 23rd floor, with great food and a fabulous view of the strip.
Have a great time!
