Martin Yan and Lee Anne Wong Honor the Top Chinese Restaurants in the USA

Martin and Lee Anne Honor the Top Chinese Restaurants

Yesterday, in New York City's J. Javits Center, celebrity chef Martin Yan, Lee Anne "Top Chef" Wong, and 300 Chinese restaurateurs gathered for the Fourth Annual Top 100 Chinese Restaurants in the USA Awards Show (try saying that fast).

The awards are broken down into ten categories — Overall Excellence, Regional Cuisine, Take-Out, Buffets, Best Value, Signature Dish, Rising Stars, Nutrition-Friendly Menus, Asian Fusion, and Metro Favorites — and there are 100 winners on each list. This year competition was open to all Chinese restaurants in the US; there were more than 43,000 participants from all 50 states. The winners were then chosen by a mystery diner program — anonymous visits and evaluations of each restaurant — as well as votes from diners and the public as a whole.

To find out if your local restaurant made the list, check out their website or download the pdf.

How do I put this nicely...I like Olive Garden and Macaroni Grill, but if I saw them on a list of the best 100 Italian restaurants in the U.S....

mamaseacat-- Lee Anne posted how she did it on her Bravo blog during the latest Top Chef season; I don't quite remember, but you can probably find it in the archives. Something about a hot pepper diet or something?

I love Martin! My mommy and I use to watch him back in the day on some random channel (we didn't have cable). He was fast with everything but always had you laughing.
