Either Chin Chin co-owner Wally Chin or his chef Chris Cheung apparently told Feast that when Walle, their New-American restaurant with Chinese influence opens in midtown in mid-May, therell be a Walle Burger (on Shanghai Pancake Bun, using Pat Lafreida [sic] Black Label Beef). Oh no there wont, says La Friedas Mark Pastore, who reminds Feast that only Minetta Tavern can serve the Black Label blend, and besides hes never heard of these people! Lesson here: If youre going to brag about your sourcing, wait till youve actually sourced it.
