The space is being cleaned up.... and some of the garish fixtures have been moved around...
I asked a worker if they were reopening. He said no. Then he said a new place would be open next month.
As Grub Street reported last month:
"Andy Yang tells us he has closed the East Village outpost of Rhong Tiam. “It was a miscalculation,” he says of its predecessor Kurve, with its infamous Karim Rashid design." He's also considering whether to remodel it (bringing the kitchen upstairs) and reopen it with a less off-putting décor, or to simply let go of the space.
Looks as if he is going the remodeling route.
