Manhattan Chinatown's 12 Oldest Eateries

View as Map

2008_10_hasmaps.jpgThroughout the week, Eater will explore Chinese restaurants new and old, in Chinatown and elsewhere, but first, to begin, it seems prudent to pay respect to the original gangsters of New York. Below, find a map of what are some of the very oldest surviving restaurants in Manhattan's Chinatown—an area that for decades encompassed four square blocks and at this point has expanded to over 20. From the Nom Wah Tea Parlor, which opened when the Tong gang warfare still raged on its Doyer Street (a.k.a. The Bloody Angle) home to relatively newer bakeries and noodle joints that opened as Chinatown first began its explosion in the 70's and 80's.
