There was another interesting article in the Post about Da Silvano. There were a lot of wild stories.

Mention should be made of Silvano's fabulous wife (a much more accomplished person than he is).

China Fun, an Upper East side institution for 25 years, has abruptly closed, blaming the 'state & municipal governments punishing rules' destroying the small mom & pop businesses. Below is a note that they posted on their door, as well as links to some articles. I am afraid a lot more small mom & pop establishments will soon be following.

***

China Fun has closed after 25 years in business. We want to thank all of our loyal customers who have been with us — whether for a day or for generations. It has been a great run serving you our delicious soup dumplings, scallion pancakes and General T'sao Chicken, but the climate for small businesses like ours in New York have become such that it's difficult to justify taking risks and running — nevermind starting — a legitimate 'mom-and-pop' business. The state and municipal governments, with their punishing rules and regulations, seem to believe that we should be their cash machine to pay for all that ails us in society, even though we suffer just like everyone else from an economy in flux. Our only wish for 2017 and beyond is for our career lawmakers and politicians, local and national alike, to take a mandatory 'Undercover Boss' challenge and live in the shoes of a small business owner for a week. Maybe then they will better understand the economically stifling environment they have created, and, dare we say, change their ways for the betterment of everyone, and not just pander to the populace that garner the most votes?

Reminds me of Lowlife. Despite significant press/buzz, out in less than a year. Just brutal.

Did we even mark the passing of King Bee? Everyone talking about it for a few months, then gone.

I wonder how Virginia's is doing. I thought it was way too expensive for off-Avenue C.
