Where is it?

In this case, it's a where was it, since this entire stretch of Kansas City's Main Street --including the Paramount Theater, Kresge's and Macy's -- is long gone.

But in a nod to Chinese New Year, which begins today, I thought it would be interesting to see if any residents of Fat City can remember one of the most famous Chinese restaurants in town in the first half of the 20th century. The joint was located on the second floor of the building on the far left, which had a drug store on the street level. This restaurant didn't last much beyond the 1950s, but in its day, it was the best-known Chinese dining room in Kansas City. Good fortune to those with that right answer!
