    Hey, Danny. I know one of the children of Hoy Toy's owner very well. Hoy Toy wasn't a toy shop. And it was called "Ho Toy," not "Hoy Toy." The owner was the son of the man who owned the Chinese Tea Garden. Just an FYI...

    Thanks!

    My parents introduced me to Chinese food at Chungs in the 50's and in 1968 I had my first legal drink at Forbidden City!!!

    Thanks! I live in LA now, but will be back in Detroit this week. I may try to check out the new Asian fusion restaurant that is now in the old building where our second location was on Cass and Peterboro!
