Redfarm’s owner and unofficial “Jews love Chinese food” spokesperson Ed Schoenfeld confirms his Upper West Side expansion dreams and describes what it was like to be a Jewish guy living in a Chinese world, back when he was a host at four-star Uncle Tai’s Hunan Yuan. “At one point, a prominent Chinese restaurateur asked Schoenfeld to drive around with him and point out all the Jewish neighborhoods — targets for an expanding empire of Szechuan restaurants,” reports the Forward. Also, bad tippers were called jautaai, which means Jew in Cantonese.” Obviously Schoenfeld is pretty hard to offend. [Forward]
Nice Jewish boy with chopsticks skills.
