Why do some Chinese restaurants have names ending in "Seafood Restaurant" when most of their menu is not seafood? I've found this most often in North American Chinatown areas with menus and signage in Chinese characters. Is "seafood restaurant" an incomplete translation of something Chinese or describes some particular culinary tradition, the same way a "steakhouse" describes a kind of restaurant where I have a good idea of what kind of non-steak foods to expect? Anywhere I can read up on what that tradition is? Or are they simply trying to advertise that they are particularly good at seafood?

What did we witness happening yesterday morning in Chinatown? We were walking down Pell St. at about 10:30 am, when I noticed a large crowd huddled around one of the storefronts. It was about 20 people, all of whom looked to be locals, most if not all of them older folks. [more inside]

I recently saw a b&w photo of Jack Nicholson as Jake Gittes (Chinatown)--it was probably on the web and I'd like to find it again. It was an extreme close-up, forehead to chin, and Jack was wearing a hat and a nose bandage. I believe it was black and white. He was looking straight into the camera. It was not a still from the film and is not (to my knowledge) a famous picture as I remarked at how odd it was that I'd never seen it before. Anyone recall seeing this?
