56th Street Round Table: Lucky Peach's Chinatown Issue
For this year's final edition of the 56th Street Round Table, we've invited Lucky Peach editors Chris Ying and Peter Meehan to join Gideon Lewis-Kraus and Danny Bowien, Lucky Peach issue 5 contributors, to explore the idea of Chinatown. They'll discuss Chinatown's perceived place in culinary and cultural history, as well as related themes and topics like exclusivity, opium dens, crated pandas, food snobbery, dim sum, roast duck, and commercialization.
