Any Truth to the Adage About (Chinese) Restaurants and Mondays?

  • m

It's long been common "wisdom" that one shouldn't eat out on Mondays, particularly in Chinese restaurants, because this is the traditional "chef's night off," and/or because produce isn't as fresh on Mondays. Is there any truth to this? I'm inclined to celebrate the traditional "Jewish Christmas" this Monday at a Chinese resturant in the D.C. area. Bad idea? Is it possible Mondays are less reliable in certain cities than in others, and, if so, does anyone know anything about D.C.?
