Chinatown restaurant in Saveur magazine

The new issue of Saveur magazine (Aug/Sep) has an article about the funeral of a woman's Chinese grandmother and how they got all their food for the funeral from a Chinatown restaurant here in Boston. Unfortunately, they don't mention which restaurant but the food sounds really good (though it's admittedly tough in the article to distinguish which items the family was cooking and which were from the restaurant, specifically, I couldn't tell where the delicious-sounding spareribs stewed in vinegar were from). I guess the only way anyone would know would be if you either know the family or know the author or maybe know the people at the restaurant but I'd be curious to see if anyone had any good tips. It was a really moving article and, if nothing else, it'd be good to patronize this place because they gave her so much free food for the funeral (I don't know that this is uncommon, but good to support it nonetheless). I don't know if its name was kept out for some legal reason but it seems to deserve a little publicity.

Also, regarding our area, they mention Concord Grape pies, which are now on my list of things to try.
