Chinese Restaurant located at the Kips Bay Apartment Complex

Anyone recall the name of the Restaurant that was located on  2nd Avenue(32nd Streets ?) in the Kips Bay Apartment Complex?
The waiters would come out with a full tray of a variety of foods. They would charge you by the number of plates.

Sal:
I went to the NYPL 42nd street main branch and checked out a reverse address directory.
Name I came across was the Golden Coach. Doesn't sound familiar, though

from 28th street-Thanks. Your a better Det. than me! LOL We'll have to wait and hear what Herb says.
If it was HSF they did have two locations.
I'm bad with remembering names of Chinese Rest.'s.  Remember the Gold Coin on 2nd & 53rd.?

One of my favorite Rest.'s on the East side was Antoloti's 337 E. 49th-Now known under the name of II Postino. Truman Copote would frequent the place. Very pricey!

HSF...in Kips Bay...yes remember it well.

Sal.
Gold Coin was right next to The Palm on 2nd avenue between 44th & 45th.
We used to talk to the valet parking guys that would stand outside parking cars in all kinds of weather.

Re: Chinese Restaurant located at the Kips Bay Apartment Complex

I grew up on 33rd btw 1&2 and the Chinese joint was definetely HSF. I remember eating there with my mom and brother as kids. My brother found a big blk garbage bag one day on the side of the restaurant filled with fortune cookies! We also played in the Kips Bay playground and I remember the Chinese kids from HSF knew Kung Fu - or at least we were pretty sure they did, lol. I'm a 1974 baby so my memories are all of the end of the 70's & 80's. I saw ET at Kips Bay movie theater and I ate pizza everyday at Rocky's with the speed bags and awesome backroom wallpaper of the boxing ring with all the celebs in the stands. I love reading all the stories of my neighborhood- especially the older ones. I went 116 (1 grade) and St.Stephens 2-6 grades. Anyone else?
