My memory may be failing, but I seem to remember that, long ago, there was a Ruby Foo restaurant on 72, between B'Way and West End. Back in the '60's, or maybe the '50's. Help me, does anyone but me remember?
Grandma Ruby Tom and her grandkids Katherine, Marat, and Sean ring in the Chinese New Year together. Ruby prepares jai (here's her recipe), a healthy Buddhist vegetarian stew (and a good luck food!) that contains 16 ingredients. Each ingredient is separately wok-cooked, then added to the pot, making this a Chinese New Year labor of love. (Ruby also gave us her recipe for Chinese New Year cake.) Ruby was introduced to us by Chowhound Melanie Wong. Thanks, Melanie!
