The tomb of a general and his princess wife buried on March 18, in the year 564, has been discovered in China.

The ancient tomb, which contained the couple's skeletons, was also filled with figurines, said the archaeologists who described the findings recently in the journal Chinese Cultural Relics.

CHINATOWN - The comeback of beloved local dive Winnie's Bar - which is one step closer to reality after getting a green light for liquor from a local committee Monday - will stick to the friendly, stripped-down atmosphere that made the original 28-year legend a success while boasting some upgrades, according to the site's future manager.

The Return of Hwa Yuan, Federal Donuts Pops Up in NYC, and More Intel
Fabled, long-gone Chinatown restaurant Hwa Yuan is coming back to life. Chen Lieh Tang, one of original proprietor Shorty Tang's six children, is reopening the restaurant in its old home on East Broadway (most recently, this space housed Bank of China). Tang will run the restaurant with his son, James. The menu will include the famous cold sesame noodles, as well as revivals of throw-back dishes like carp with black bean sauce and Marvelous Orange Beef. The space will have a raw bar, private dining rooms, and many marble surfaces.

The New York State Assembly announced Friday afternoon that it will pass a bill to delay the implementation of a 5-cent plastic bag fee in the city. NY1's Zack Fink filed the following report.
Next week, the state legislature is set to postpone the implementation of a 5-cent bag fee that was scheduled to take effect on February 15.


Over the past two years of writing this column about immigrants and their food, I've cooked with a Filipina nurse who used scalpels to debone chicken; a Senegalese family that eats out of the same dish to emphasize everyone's responsibility to one another; a Mexican Popsicle maker who tried to heal the ache of her divorce by sharing literal sweetness. 


Join us on Saturday, February 11 at 2 PM for a screening of the documentary Tested. Writer/Producer/Director Curtis Chin will be in attendance for a Q&A.

Poke, a dish traditionally made with fresh raw fish and toppings like onions and seaweed, has been popular in Hawaii for decades.

Manhattan in NYC has the largest population of Chinatown in the West. If you are up for some culinary adventure, then better try the Chinatown restaurants there. Here are the five best Chinatown restaurants in NYC:


It's been more than 15 years since the 9/11 attacks spread a cloud of toxic chemicals and dust across Lower Manhattan, and advocates say that many of the people who were harmed by it still don't realize how they were affected - or that help is available.


Before a sea of paper lanterns and lion dancers swept up Mott Street on Saturday-part of the exuberant Lunar New Year's celebrations that overtook New York City this weekend-the buzz at the Chinatown salon scene had reached a fever pitch.


New York City organizations made a push to recognize the Chinese Lunar New Year outside of Chinatown by holding festivities on Madison Avenue, hoping to impress upon tourists and members of the New York City community the cultural significance of the Chinese Spring Festival.


The New York Chinese Freemasons Athletic Club (more on that name in a second) hosts what's believed to be the longest-running lion dance troupe in New York City. For this year's Lunar New Year Parade, pairs of lion dancers will again don giant papier-mâché heads and colorful synthetic tails to cavort through the streets


Lunar New Year, which also encompasses Chinese New Year or "Spring Festival," begins on Jan. 27 and ends Feb. 2. While Chinese New Year is part of Lunar New Year, Lunar New Year is not necessarily Chinese New Year - it is more of a blanket term that is celebrated by more than one culture.


BEIJING - Holidays can be joyful times, bringing together long-separated family members. They can also be the most dreaded times for precisely that reason. Things may go horribly wrong under the weight of mutual expectations, and escape is difficult.


Councilwoman Margaret Chin excoriated the police department and other city agencies on Thursday for illegally parking in her lower Manhattan district - and with seemingly no repercussions.
