From the "Today's Papers" section in Slate:

The NYT goes inside with a profile of the latest happening restaurant in Lianbian, China. Named Sent Down Youth No. 1 Village Wild Flavors Restaurant, the place is a kitschy ode to Mao's Cultural Revolution, complete with propaganda posters and waiters dressed in 1960's Red Army garb. The eatery also happens to specialize in wild animals, everything from flying foxes to baby deer. The owner, "who sports a cellphone, a shag haircut, and two rings in his left ear," explains: "I decided on a Cultural Revolution theme because in those days we suffered a great deal and never had anything to eat. Now we are prosperous and can eat anything we want."
