To know Chinatown food is to know its people: their passions, their struggles, and their triumphs.

Every restaurant is a story.

There are stories of legacy: Chinatown’s sons and daughters who grow up to be entrepreneurs and restaurateurs. Stories of diversity: the flavors of China’s regional cuisines converging in New York City. And stories of evolution: a constant weaving between the classic and modern, the old and the new.

Join the Young Professionals of MOCA for "Beyond Takeout: A Culinary History Of Chinatown."

A MOCA educator will lead you on a tour through Chinatown to learn about the past and ongoing histories of some of your favorite eateries. End the day at the Museum for a food and wine tasting (featuring good eats from Red Egg, Nom Wah, and more) while mingling with your fellow MOCA YPs, members, and friends.
