Chinatown's Classic Mee Sun Cafe Closed by DOH

Chinatown's ancient Mee Sun Cafe, on Pell Street, has been felled by the Department of Health. The small storefront is shut up tighter than a drum. A notice on the door said the City came knocking on April 27.

In 1971, New York magazine described the hole in the wall as "a busy, fast-moving, noisy, sloppy establishment with a good Dim Sum repertoire." Yes!
