Former Angelica Kitchen space will yield to a Chinese noodle shop on 12th Street

A new tenant has leased the space last occupied by Angelica Kitchen at 300 E. 12th St. at Second Avenue.
According to an Instagram post yesterday by the broker, the address will soon be home to "the famous Chinese Lan Zhou noodle restaurant!"
It's not immediately clear which restaurant she means... perhaps another branch of Lan Zhou Handmade Noodles in the New World Mall Food Court in Flushing ... or Lanzhou Hand Pulled Noodles on Roosevelt Avenue in Flushing.
Anyway, as for Angelica, Leslie McEachern's vegan restaurant, which first opened on St. Mark's Place in 1976, shut down after service back on April 7. 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.
