Chinese New Years Banquet - where and how?

If a hound wanted to have a New Years feast at a good Chinese restaurant this weekend (or later, if it would still be possible), how would she go about it? and where? Do restaurants offer special menus? do you have to make a reservation for a banquet and can you do that? Or can you just walk in? Do they have banquets at the standard chow-recommended places, Peach Farm or Chilli Garden for instance? Is one type of regional cuisine more inclined towards such things? Do you have to go at night? And how many people would you ideally have for the project? Any and all input on this delightful subject would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Can anyone recommend good Asian cookbooks?

I'm looking for something good and authentic, but with reasonably straightforward recipes - like Mark Bittman but Asian. I've got Madhur Jaffrey's East Asian cookbook, which is good, but there are only a few recipes per cuisine. I have access to Asian markets but often am not familiar with most of what is there. Any advice? Chinese, Korean and Thai food is what I most like to try at home...I'm a reasonably confident and experienced cook but less so when it comes to non-Western stuff - but I love it and would love not to have to only get out for it!

Thanks!
