While on the topic of 118 First Ave. ... The Tang, the Chinese noodle bar and its neighbor to the north at 120 First Ave., closed in early October ... an event that I forgot to note...
Here's part of the closing message from Team Tang on Instagram:
After three years of serving the neighborhood, we are sad to announce that The Tang EV will be closing on Monday, October 7.
Since we have found a new home at Upper West Side, to be more consistent with our brand, we are shutting down our East Village location. However, please stay tuned on our upcoming project, which we are very excited about. It will be a brand new concept that we will turn this space into.
We want to thank all the neighbors for your continuous support and all the employees who have worked here.
Last month, reps for The Tang appeared before CB3's SLA committee for an alteration to their existing license. CB3 approved the extended hours. Per the official minutes of the meeting:
[T]his is an application for an Asian noodle restaurant with a certificate of occupancy of seventy-four (74) people, six (6) tables and twenty-two (22) seats, no bar, proposed hours of operation of 11:30 A.M. to 1:00 A.M. Sundays through Thursdays and 12:00 P.M. to 4:00 A.M. Fridays and Saturdays, a kitchen open during all hours of operation...
No other word on what this new concept might be...
Darn, their Dan Dan Noodles were phenomenal.
I bet this is Jane's Sweet Buns/Proletariat all over again
