Remember last fall when you stood in line for a half-hour to eat dinner at your favorite Chinatown restaurant?
Well, you won't have that problem now.
Chinatown's restaurateurs gathered yesterday at a news conference to plead with the public to resurrect the healthy business conditions that prevailed there until a scant 11 days ago.
That's when deputy U.S. marshals padlocked the New Eastern Food Co. warehouse on Westmoreland Street near 19th. The warehouse was a supplier to Chinese restaurants. Officials said food at the warehouse had been stored under unsanitary conditions and some had been contaminated by insects, rat droppings and other filth.
