The Chinese restaurant accused of discriminating in favor of customers who speak Chinese has irked Mayor Bloomberg. “If nobody goes to that restaurant, then they won’t make any money and they’ll go out of business,” Bloomberg told the Daily News.
“It’s unconscionable to use race on any of these things, in terms of what kind of service, or how you charge, or whatever,” Bloomberg said.
“Go patronize a different [restaurant.] Let capitalism work.” According to the Daily News, the city Human Rights Commission determined there was probable cause that discrimination had taken place at the Canal Seafood Restaurant located at 266 Canal St., and referred the case to the office of Administrative Trials and Hearings for a trial. —MEGHANN MARCO
