As we first noted back in May, there's a new restaurant in the works for 120 First Ave. near Seventh Street (and next door to the International).
The owners of The Tang, a contemporary Chinese noodle bar, had its soft opening yesterday. ("No boisteous celebration, no crazy party, no private media tasting session ... simply opening our door to our EV neighbors who love noodles.")

And the owners shared this description of their restaurant:
At The Tang, we serve noodles, wraps, and appetizers based on traditional recipes originated from various regions in China and present the essence of authentic flavors, together with innovative twists inspired by the big apple’s metropolitan appetite. Our menu features our specialty noodles and wraps, in addition to seasonal dishes.
We understand how sipping hot noodles soup becomes challenging in the summer, and that’s why we are currently offering you exclusively our dried and cold noodles with a variety of toppings and sauces. Of course, cold drinks like ice brew oolong tea and refreshing appetizers, such as Chungking Express salad and Hala Chicken, are included in our menu to beat the summer heat. But don’t worry, by the time you pull out your winter jackets, we will have the steaming soup noodles ready for you.
The hours are Monday-Thursday 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Friday-Sunday noon to midnight.
