From Coffeehouses to Banquet Halls
1 – 3PM
As MOCA gets ready for the fall exhibition Sour, Sweet, Bitter, spicy: Stories of Chinese Food and Identity in America, join us this summer for a walking tour inspired by our 2004 exhibition, “Have You Eaten Yet?”: The Chinese Restaurant in America. This walking tour traces the evolution of eateries in Chinatown, highlighting stories of diversity - the flavors of China’s regional cuisines converging in New York City; stories of legacy - Chinatown’s sons and daughters who grew up to be entrepreneurs and restauranteurs; and stories of evolution - a constant weaving between the classic and modern, the old and the new.
