Located on the second floor of the New World Mall in Flushing, DaXi is an ideal destination for a slightly lavish group dinner out. The gold walls have a scallop design reminiscent of Art Nouveau, and some of the cushier seats are upholstered with Chinese bird motifs on the back. Much of the food presentation also seems designed to be photographed, such as Tibet-style spare ribs served in a gilded birdcage and the house special rice with cured meat that comes in a giant cast-iron crock with a handle. But be sure to leave room for the brown sugar glutinous rice cakes, fried up in the shape of mozzarella sticks, with a light crunch on the outside and a soft and chewy middle.
