Our visit to Sonny Lee's Hunan Taste persuaded me that, in the right hands, Hunan cuisine is still capable of giving much pleasure, even surprise and delight, and that if eating Chinese food on Christmas has been only a phantom tradition, it's time to make it real.

What came through, though, was a level of concern and attention, some of it provided by Lee himself, that made the meal seem the product less of an assembly line than a team of real, engaged cooks.
