Good Day Chinese Restaurant in North Columbia Square on Fairfield Road reminds me a bit of the old Chung King restaurant in Intersection Center, at least as far as having painstaking, attractive, woodwork nailed to the bricks.

The building itself obviously predates Good Day and it's on the tip of my tongue what it must have been originally, but for some reason I'm drawing a blank.

UPDATE 30 September 2012 -- Tender as Quail! Tasty as Pheasant!

Commenters have identified the original tenant of this building as Golden Skillet and pictures like this one confirm that. I don't know when that closed, but it was before the February 1997 phonebook, and Wikipedia suggests the chain went into decline after 1981.

  2. Could it have possibly been a "Golden Skillet?"

  5. Yes, it was a Golden Skillet, and I'm reasonably sure Fran's on Forest Drive was briefly a Golden Skillet before it became Fran's then Zoe's.
