La Dinastia China

New York, NY 10023
Dinastia China and La Caridad were Upper West Side legacies of Chinese migration from Cuba following the communist revolution. Not particularly cheap, but tasty and a legitimate sit-down place to eat, albeit fairly spartan. The Cuban side of the menu was generally better than the Chinese side, although the Chinese side was more than acceptable and leans toward the older, more sedate Cantonese style that once dominated the Chinese-American culinary landscape.
