MILAN, Ill. — A Milan restaurant's reopening was blessed with droves of customers coming back to taste some of their favorite Chinese food Tuesday.
Shanghai Chinese Restaurant reopened for business nearly one year after a severe fire forced it to close last September. The business spent around $100,00 on renovations and new equipment to prepare for the big day.
Currently, Shanghai is only open for carryout orders.
This led to Quad Citizens flocking in droves to line up outside the restaurant for hours to once again get a taste of a local favorite.
"When you can eat in the family atmosphere...they give you great food and just great people," said customer Evette Conroy.
A public, unofficial Facebook page for the restaurant is filled with posters enthusiastically sharing their lines, orders, and stories.
