My favorite restaurants in Boston and NYC are not on the list.
I was actually surprised to see a Boston Chinatown restaurant is on the list. I didn't think any one there was exceptional, although there are a few ok ones.
I love the Sichuan restaurant near NYC Chinese Consulates General. I don't remember its English name. My foodie Chengdu girlfriend thinks it's the best she has ever had in the States. I think it can easily beat some popular Sichuan restaurant in Beijing, not in terms of dish variety, but in flavors of some dishes.
