RE: do Chinese restaurants have two names?
I don't think this is so prevalent in Rochester, but we used to joke years ago how the names of most local Chinese restaurants were similar to the family style dinners they all listed in the back of the menu. It seemed like they picked one name from column A and one from column B.
Column A: Lucky, Jade, Great, China, Golden, Chen, Royal, Dragon (sometimes used as 1st name)
Column B: Garden, Dragon, Palace, Win, Gate, Moon, Star, Wok, Noodle, Dynasty
Lately, many of the newer places that open have buffet as part of the name, although many of the original order-what-you-want places still exist.
The funniest name was one that opened up across the street from where I work - Taste Good Chinese Restaurant. It was very good under the original owner, but she moved back to China and the people who bought it ran it into the ground. The food was not good and the place became very dirty inside.
It closed for a few years and was recently reopened and completely remodeled. The name is now NY Buffet, but their buffet is excellent, and you can order anything you want off the menu or for take-out.
