More about Yuan Noodle, coming soon to 2nd Avenue

In late April, we noted that there was a new restaurant in the works for 157 Second Ave.

Yuan Noodle is on this month's CB3-SLA committee agenda for a new liquor license. (You can read their CB3 questionnaire here.)

Eater has more on what's to come:

Former financier Jacob Ding is using family recipes to open a Guilin boiled rice noodle and dim sum parlor, after his wife told him she wished that type of restaurant existed.

Ding grew up in Guilin, China, where rice noodles reign. They’re thick and come with various topping such as roasted peanuts, scallions, chiles, and assorted pickles. Ding will serve his dry, as opposed to with soup, alongside a condensed gravy-like sauce and with options like roast pork and braised beef.

Yuan Noodle will also offer classic dim sum dishes, such as shumai, har gow, and vegetable dumplings.

The restaurant is now hiring ...

The address here between Ninth Street and 10th Street previously housed Biang!, the sit-down Chinese restaurant via Xi'an Famous Foods owner Jason Wang, and Alder, Wylie Dufresne's bistro.
