Santa Monica to the Stars restaurateur turned 106: Deadline

Madame Sylvia Wu, whose Santa Monica Chinese restaurant served generations of Southern Californians and many celebrities, died Sept. 29 at age 106, her family confirmed.

In her later years, Wu remained top of mind on the Westside with cookbooks, television shows, and charity work, particularly at the City of Hope cancer center.

His restaurant was one of the first in Southern California to offer stylized cuisine beyond Chop Suey (while also catering to conventional tastes). She was a fixture in her business, even taking takeout phone orders while she worked the room.

Frank Sinatra, Mia Farrow, Mae West, Paul Newman, Princess Grace and many more have dined at Madame Wu’s over the years. He closed the original Wilshire Boulevard restaurant in 1998, but later opened Madame Wu’s Asian Bistro & Sushi in the newly opened Grove. That venture was not as successful, but Madame Wu remained beloved by her lifelong clients.

Survivors include sons George and Patrick and numerous grandchildren. Her husband died in 2011. The two had been married for 67 years.
