From Coffeehouses to Banquet Halls Walking Tour - Every Saturday at 1pm

 

As MOCA gets ready for the fall exhibition Sour, Sweet, Bitter, Spicy: Stories of Chinese Food and Identity in America, join us this summer for a walking tour inspired by our 2004 exhibition “Have you Eaten Yet?”: The Chinese Restaurant in America. This walking tour traces the evolution of eateries in Chinatown, highlighting stories of diversity—the flavors of China’s regional cuisines converging in New York City; stories of legacy—Chinatown’s sons and daughters who grew up to be entrepreneurs and restaurateurs; and stories of evolution—a constant weaving between the classic and modern, the old and the new.
