The Ninth Annual Top 100 Chinese Restaurants Awards Ceremony was held on Saturday, February 16 in Newark, organized by the Chinese Restaurant Foundation, a non-profit trade association. The highlight of this year's awards show was the ribbon cutting ceremony for a 40-foot-long wall exhibit of the "Sweet and Sour Timeline," to celebrate the milestones of American Chinese Cuisine within the past 160 years and its cultural heritage - from the clay pots to the "melting pot." More than 300 restaurateurs and chefs from 39 states, as well as guests from Canada, Australia, and China, attended. Joining the ribbon cutting was Congress Member Judy Chu, Smithsonian Representative Cedric Yeh, Celebrity Master Chef Martin Yan, Newark Mayor Alan Nagy, Fremont Mayor Bill Harrison, and top Chinese restaurant chain representatives, including marketing partners from P.F. Chang's.
