Have you eaten yet?

If you're going to be in the NYC area anytime from now until June (2005), I highly suggest a stop at MoCA in Chinatown to view their current exhibition, Have you eat yet?

This exhibit explores the one of the most iconic themes of Chinese-American culture, the Chinese restaurant. The museum is small and the exhibition is really only in one large room, but the curators and designers really maximized the space the have--they managed to document the rise and popularity of Chinese restaurants in America and how they changed and influenced American culture itself. It is fascinating to see a story of food that can be told through immigration

Since you're already in the heart of Chinatown, after your visit step outside and find yourself your next great Chinese meal.
