Dynasty chef now at Great Wall South, with New Year dishes

For fans of Dynasty Cuisine, which offered marvelous Chinese food (and hot pots!) in Matthews but closed more than a year ago, good news: chef Joe Lam has turned up, at Great Wall of China South, at 6666 Carmel Road. Owner Alex Chow says Lam is head chef, and he's doing some special things for a fixed-price Chinese New Year menu offered through Feb. 16, among them braised pork feet with dried oyster and black fungus, stuffed tofu with shrimp paste and Chinese greens, stir-fried cuttlefish with chive flower, lobster with ginger and scallion, and, for an additional charge, crabmeat fish maw soup. Dinner for ten people: $298 ($328 with the soup). 704-542-5409.
