I based the Chinese restaurant in my novel Dead Barchetta on an actual place. The restaurant doubles as a depot for a Chinatown NYC bus at night, much like the one in my story. Today I slipped away from the day job to get something to eat and happened to notice the place is under new management, and has a new name:
Truthfully, I almost had a wreck, thinking the restaurant had been renamed to King Wang, which is an interesting name for anything to an irreverent person. Looking closer, however, I believe the first word is Xing, but I could be mistaken.
I admit I enjoyed a giggle on the drive back to work. However, the question remains: how am I going to incorporate this into the sequel?
