OPENED IN NORTH PARK ON AUGUST 17, CONSORTIUM HOLDINGS NEWEST RESTAURANT PAYS HOMAGE TO AMERICAN CHINESE TAKEOUT CLASSICS, WITH A MENU THAT ATTEMPTS TO CHRONICLE THE CULTURAL EXCHANGE BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND CHINA THAT HELPED TURN RESTAURANT DINING INTO AN EGALITARIAN IDEAL AND A DEMOCRATIC EXPERIENCE IN THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY.
“Among my chef friends and the epicurean elites, aka “foodies”, the conversation around great Chinese food was always centered around authenticity, with classic American Chinese takeout dishes not considered authentic. But, having grown up in the Chinese American restaurant my parents have worked at for the past 25 years, I’ve always seen it as a by-product of enormous creativity and ingenuity of Chinese Immigrants. They adapted to what was available to them in the early 20th century and created some of the most iconic dishes in the history of this country, I’m really proud of this cuisine,” says Chef Tony Guan who is helming the kitchen at Fortunate Son.Visit Site
