The Bao is the latest St. Mark's Place restaurant entry



Signage arrived Friday for the new restaurant coming to 13 St. Mark's Place (above Spot Dessert Bar) … The Bao, which, as you can see, will be serving xiao long bao (soup dumplings) in the space that previously housed Pan.

No word just yet who the owners are … or when the place will open.

Well, while we're on this block between Second Avenue and Third Avenue … here's a recap of other new bar/restaurant entries …

Barcade is opening one of their bar-retro video game venues at 6 St. Mark's Place.



Something called Crab Shack is in the works for 30 St. Mark's Place, the former home of Japadog.



Also! A reader told us that the 2 Bros. outpost at 36 St. Mark's Place — the one with the glitzy $1.50 SUPREME slice — is no longer part of the 2 Bros. empire…

All the 2 Bros. branding has been removed … and there's just a generic PIZZA sign now… still selling $1.50 slices though.

A rogue dollar-slice joint? Most exciting thing to happen on that fucking block in years.

I looked at the headline quickly and thought it said "The Bro is the latest St. Mark's Place restaurant entry"

Figured someone finally cut out the middle man.

Sigh. Another newcomer with no sense of appreciation for the history and culture of the city. Around here, you don't just open a restaurant called "The Bao". No, you gotta incorporate the word into a cute pun. See Baohaus, BaoBQ, Baoguette, Baond and Gagged. Okay so I made that last one up, but you get the point.

In a few months, it'll be bao-bye.

There's now a 99 cent Pizza Place right next door to the Deli on 4th and 2nd. They're open very late and the pizza is ok, can't complain for a buck.

Those "tags" if you can call them that suuuuuck.

Talk about an entire generation of NYC kids who never had a mentor show them how to tag.

Cash at least tried with the multi-colors.
