Choosy About Chinese 

A Single Pebble hopes you vote Vermont

If you've visited A Single Pebble recently, you may have received a postcard with your check. What does it say? The much-touted eatery is in the running to be named one of the top 100 Chinese restaurants in the U.S.

According to the Chinese Restaurant News, which is administering the contest, the nation has more than 43,139 Chinese restaurants. The publication's goal is to find an "avenue to establish standards to award excellence in Chinese cuisine." To make the list, restaurants need a combo of votes from customers on the Web and the good will of judges, who will visit a number of the top candidates.

"It is very special for Single Pebble to be nominated," says co-owner Christina Duval, the only Chinese person on staff at ASP. "All my crew is American, and we put out outstanding food every night." When the Chinese ambassador dined there last year, he was "very surprised" when Duval introduced her Caucasian staff. "He said it was the best Chinese food he had in the United States," she boasts. Duval credits Chef Steve Bogart's passion for the culture and cuisine of China for making the restaurant what it is.

To vote, visit http://top100.C-R-N.com before the end of September. At least A Single Pebble boasts a classier name than other nominees such as Buffet City, Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot and Ying's Wings and Things.
