SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco Chinese restaurant once known for having “the world’s rudest waiter” may not be closing for good after all.

The owners of Sam Wo restaurant are scheduled to plead their case to the city’s Public Health Department at a hearing on Tuesday.

Owner David Ho’s daughter, Julie, told the San Francisco Chronicle (https://bit.ly/JcjydH) that the restaurant will be closed over the weekend, but nothing is definite beyond that.

Health officials had demanded changes after finding violations including rodent activity, but the restaurant’s owners had said the 100-year-old eatery in Chinatown was just too old. They had planned to serve their last meals early Saturday.

The restaurant was famous for the late Edsel Ford Fung, dubbed “the world’s rudest waiter.” Fung was known for insulting customers and slamming dishes on tables.
