The New York Times’ food critic Sam Sifton mentions a late lamented Brooklyn Heights Chinese restaurant in his Q&A column today:
NYT: Ah, the great bad Chinese food of our youth! For the younger Mr. Critic there was China Chili on Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights, where a dish called Chicken Yunan reigned supreme: all dark meat and gloppy brown sauce and mushrooms and the red glint of peppers to warm the heart. You could eat there in gloom and happiness, and occasionally a Chapin brother would come in for a meal or takeout: folk-rock royalty with an egg roll on the side. Now it is a Radio Shack.
