Dragon 2000 combines the best aspects of Chinese and American restaurants. Its high-design like sitting in a big gold pot and high-swank without being pretentious or blindingly flashy. If you go about it the right way, you can also order gorgeous, authentic Szechuan food. The only challenge: to convince your waiter that you really want it. Ask him or her to help you sort through the Chinese menu (especially the small plates) and follow all recommendations, be they kidney, fake goose, tea-smoked duck, or scallops.
