Chinese in Chinatown

Will do:)

Chinese in Chinatown

When I was in China in the early 80s before the rush of tourists I ate really good food and food that tasted like crap. Since I was in China (all over the state) you could argue it was "authentic". Some of the food, though, was bad. I'd prefer good to authentic any day.
Cuisine is a evolution. Just think about Italy pre New World contact. I find authentic and people who pontificate on it pretentious.

I do want Chinese, but open to province. I think authentic is difficult to define. Would like to walk in and around Chinatown, but can jump on the metro and go 15 minutes further afield for really good food.. I grew up on NYC Chinese food, but living in a small Midwest town with boring Chinese. Staying Dc central would like to walk if possible,
