Sotomayor is happy to chat about dumplings, but not Lohan

If you want to chat with Justice Sonia Sotomayor about Chinese food, fine. But don’t ask her about Lindsay Lohan.

That was the lesson for a New York Daily News reporter this week.

Spotted outside Joe’s Shanghai restaurant in New York City’s Chinatown this week, the Supreme Court jurist raved about the food.

“It’s my favorite Chinese restaurant in the city,” Sotomayor said of the eatery, where she dined on soup, dumplings, scallion pancakes, braised bean curd with spinach and other fare with a group of friends. The dumplings were a particular hit, Sotomayor said, because “that’s what they’re famous for.”

But when asked if she would have given Lohan, the troubled actress who was handed a 90-day jail sentence this week, Sotomayor demurred.

“You know I wouldn’t answer that question,” Sotomayor said with a grin. “But I really admire your chutzpah.”

  1. The wise latina is not about to let the charming Kagan have the last word on Chinese restaurants. Jealous, jealous, jealous.
