Renovations continue at 192 First Ave. between 11th Street and 12th Street.
As we pointed out back on Sept. 30, Koko Wings, specializing in Korean fried chicken, is opening its second NYC outpost here. (The other is on West 106th Street.)
That 106th Street locale got a nice writeup via Westside Rag upon opening in 2014:
The wings are marinated in either soy garlic or hot and spicy sauce, both of which were tasty. You can also order drumsticks or chicken strips in the same marinades. The Kimchi cole slaw had a nice kick, as expected. Other Korean dishes like mandu (dumplings) and pa-jeon (scallion pancakes with seafood) are also on the menu...
An opening day for the EV location hasn't been announced.
Despite good food and intentions, the previous tenant here, Chelsea Thai, closed after five months in business this past January.
