We chose Yang Chow and it was a good choice. The streets were closed for the parade, which made parking a problem, but once we were at the table all was well and the food was good...as was the service.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Is that restaurent where you ate in the old Chinatown portrayed in the film of the same name, directed by Roman Polanski? Or does that Chinatown still exist? The film was set in the 1930's.

according to discoverlosangeles.com.......

Chinatown is one of L.A.'s most popular tourist destinations, located in Downtown L.A. near the city's civic and cultural center. Travelers may be confused by the "New Chinatown" mural that marks the neighborhood's Central Plaza, but there's a story behind that. L.A.'s first Chinatown was located where Union Station is now. In the early 1930s, the old enclave was razed in favor of L.A.'s major train terminal, and in June 1938 a new Chinatown celebrated its grand opening not far from where the original neighborhood stood. New Chinatown became a significant part of both local and national history - it's the first such neighborhood in the U.S. that was actually owned by Chinese residents.
