Lao Sze Chuan Another Popular Chinatown Restaurant Expanding North into the Sloop

Wow another Chinatown restaurant making its way north into the Sloop:

Lao Sze Chuan is a popular, Chinatown staple that we love but moving into this location seems strange to us.  Its had challenges keeping tenants (Mai Tai closed at this location last year) and isn't a strip known for restaurants.

All that said, Lao Sze Chuan has had numerous locations throughout the city - so the move isn't completely a shock.  As of now they have Chinatown and another location up in Uptown.  There was also a location on the Mag Mile for a little bit, but that appears to have close.

More interesting to us is that this is the third Chinatown restaurant spill north into the Sloop.  Ming Hin opened a huge, sparkling two story restaurant at 1234 S. Michigan and just two weeks we posted about My Place opening in the former Lobo Canteen restaurant at 1307 S. Wabash.
