Falls Church restaurant memorializes an unlikely regular: the 41st president


In a non-descript Falls Church strip mall, a culinary secret: the Peking Gourmet Inn, where George H.W. Bush dined with his family more than a hundred times over the last thirty years.

The restaurant even had plaques for the president and his wife Barbara on two of their chairs, and a window with bullet-proof glass to protect Bush as he dined at a semi-private table with Secret Service only feet away.

"Every time he came in, the same thing -- everybody standing up and applauding," said George Tsui, the restaurant's owner.
