So after 6 years, 4 months and 3 days; more than a million suggestions and „pieces of advice“, it was finally time to decide what would be the theme of the ETVAS MAG premiere issue. Two pieces of advice stood out among all the others. 1. Talk about things that you love or that bother you… 2. Write things that you’d want to be remembered by in case there is no second issue…..Easy…. Newton, Versace, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Chinese Food and GURU……“The Classics“.

HOMEY CHOW – ETVAS MAG’s LATE NITE POP-UP RESTAURANT
American Soulfood meets New York Chinatown:
Its the mid 1970’s…..On the 5th floor of a high-rise office building on Canal Street, in the middle of Chinatown, New York, there were two loft apartments. One was occupied by Jon Moressi, the famous photographer and the other was a mysterious office where on the door it said “Homey Chow- Private Detective”.
It was not really known what was went on inside, but when Mr. Moressi looked out his peephole at 5 in the morning he would see people like Andy Warhol, Miles Davis or Bruce Lee going into this mysterious Private Detective office….. And the smell that came out was a heavenly mix of Chinese dumplings, fried chicken and strangely enough, waffles……

A month later the “Homey Chow” Pop-up Restaurant was re-created and opened its doors! Complete with Peking Duck and “Grits and Gravy”.
