History served in Chinatown (see Not About Food)

At the Museum of Chinese in the Americas (Mulberry and Bayard in Chinatown), there's a small but intriguing exhibition on a long-gone Chinese restaurant in Los Angeles. This is a kind of time capsule of dinnerware, furnishings and other artifacts from the restaurant, General Lee's Man Jen Low, with videotaped oral history from a former chef. Worth a look for anyone interested in Chinese restaurants and immigration, or changing American tastes.

I've posted a description on Not About Food (replies, if any, should go there).
