Any Truth to the Adage About (Chinese) Restaurants and Mondays?

Marty L. | Dec 23, 2000 07:10 PM

It's long been common "wisdom" that one shouldn't eat out on Mondays, particularly in Chinese restaurants, because this is the traditional "chef's night off," and/or because produce isn't as fresh on Mondays. Is there any truth to this? I'm inclined to celebrate the traditional "Jewish Christmas" this Monday at a Chinese resturant in the D.C. area. Bad idea? Is it possible Mondays are less reliable in certain cities than in others, and, if so, does anyone know anything about D.C.?

Thanks
