    I believe the place you're looking for is NY Noodletown at 28 Bowery.

      I agree. That's the Chinese name for Great New York Noodletown. Here is a photo of the place with its Chinese name on the store sign.

      I believe it exists in a Warren Zevon song.

        Wow! If that was the name of my restaurant, I would *have* to turn around the first two words! :)

          And you take the prize for best comment on this restaurant name! WZ was what came to my mind immediately.

          It's in the Soho area of LONDON, not NYC. "He was lookin' for a place called Lee Ho Fook..."

            But of course, but astonishingly enough, the Chinese name of NY Noodletown (which to my shame I never noticed) is (in Mandarin) Li He Fu which is apparently pronounced Lee HoFook in Cantonese. Too amusing.
