It's still there if it's the one you're talking about. Right across from the old Kilcar House which is now Lone Star. There was a liquor store on the corner next to it. Don't know the name of it.

I was a big fan of the Shore Road Chinese restaurant in the middle of 86th street between 4th and 5th avenues opposite where McDonalds is now.

I remember all the restaurants mentioned here, but I knew Eddie, the guy who opened Pearl of China in the late '70s and we remained friends until the '90s when he sold it and moved away.  It was on 3rd between 86th and 85th.  Great guy and I wish him and his family luck wherever they went. And yes, they were probably the best Chinese restaurant in Bay Ridge (at least as far as I was concerned).

It was actually between 84th and 85th but who cares. They were the best around then. After that I went to Lai Yueng on 100th street and 4th Ave. Not sure of spelling. They were expensive though.
