New York City's Chinatown to Host Food Festival

Ready for one more food New York City festival? City website Gothamist is reporting that Chinatown's nine-day-long restaurant week begins this Friday. There will only be 17 restaurants participating—check out the Village Voice for a full list. (Vietnamese, Japanese and Malaysian restaurants will also be participating.)

Three-course meals starting at $18.88 per person (eight is an auspicious number in Chinese culture), although a pricier eatery like Peking Duck House will only offer the pre-fixe during lunch.

Amusingly enough, the story notes, Chinatown Restaurant Week is co-sponsored by MSG. We'll leave you to make the jokes.
