Cows, pigs and chickens now adorn the walls at the former vegan favorite Angelica Kitchen

As reported in November, a Chinese restaurant is taking over the former Angelica Kitchen on 12th Street near Second Avenue.

The signage went up last week for Dunhuang East Village, the latest location for the restaurant serving northwestern Chinese cuisine ... featuring a variety of hand-pulled noodles. (You can find their menu here.)

The walls of the under-renovation space are adorned with cows, pigs and chickens ...

Angelica Kitchen, which first opened on St. Mark's Place in 1976, shut down after service in April 2017. Owner Leslie McEachern said that "making the numbers work week in and week out is just not viable for us anymore."

The restaurant moved to 12th Street in 1987.

And while we're at it... here's a look at the incoming neighbor on the southeast corner of Second Avenue and 12th Street — Lumos Kitchen ... you can read the previous post on this venture here.

Thanks to Shiv for also sending photos of the Dunhuang East Village signage!

My only comment is that the former restaurant was spelled "Angelica" Kitchen.
