Today's the last and final service at century-old Sam Wo in Chinatown, as reported yesterday. SFist brings us a shot of the line down the block this afternoon as patrons wait to get in for a goodbye meal, as well as some remembrances from fans. And the Scoop dug up that clip from the Tales of the City mini-series in which there's a Chinese restaurant waiter based on "rudest waiter in the world" Edsel Ford Fong.
Turns out the scene was actually shot at the Formosa Café in L.A. Ah well.
