Tuome reopens on 5th Street for takeout and delivery

Tuome, 536 E. Fifth St. between Avenue A and Avenue B, returned to service yesterday for the first time since the PAUSE in March.

For now, the Michelin-starred restaurant is open for takeout and delivery Tuesday-Saturday 5-9 p.m.

Thomas Chen, an accountant turned cook/chef, opened Tuome — billed as serving "contemporary American cuisine with Asian influences" — in August 2014. He worked his way up through the kitchen ranks at Eleven Madison Park before Tuome.

Tuome joins Lavagna and Minca Ramen Factory in dining offerings on this stretch of Fifth near B. On Sept. 3, Ace Bar will reopen with curbside drinks and food.

Ace bar does not have food

Ace Bar will be offering food. They will have to since Gov. Cuomo mandated in late July that bars serve a 'substantive' meal along with drinks. Bar owners, already under a financial strain and working with skeleton crews, were left scrambling to create a menu or face significant fines or the threat of closure — even if they never served food before the COVID-19 PAUSE.

BTW, at the International Bar on First Avenue, they are now serving some pretty tasty homemade ham sandwiches — with key ingredients purchased from the East Village Meat Market. They also teamed up with Superiority Burger to serve their famous vegan Saturated Party Sub.
