Chow celebrates the birth and evolution of Chinese American restaurants, tracing their nearly 170-year history and sparking conversation around immigration, cultural identity, and what it means to be American. Discover how Chinese Americans persevered despite racism and exclusionary laws, and created one of America's most beloved cuisines.
Chow features chef-designed tastings, live demos of a fortune cookie machine, and a beautiful collection of artifacts.

A special pop-up film exhibit featuring a curated selection of eight stories from filmmaker James Boo’s 1 Minute Meal, an innovative multimedia project of micro documentaries about food. Collectively, these narratives reveal how New Yorkers use food to nourish the communities they come from, support, or struggle to preserve.
A screening and opening reception will be held on on Thursday, July 27. Following the opening reception, entry to 1 Minute Meal will be included with admission to Chow: Making the Chinese American Restaurant.
