China Blue would be a great place to film a movie. It’s huge, and decorated in a sort of Jazz Age style, with lamps that have hanging crystals and other assorted vintage accessories. They’re owned by the same people as Midtown’s Cafe China and Williamsburg’s Birds Of A Feather, and focus on Shanghai-style food. Get any of the dumplings, the crispy eel, and the noodles with scallion sauce and dried shrimp. If you’re not into filming movies, it’s a great option for a big group dinner or private event.
