On second thought, Chef Hans looks to be the new tenant for 120 1st Ave.
Last month, the @TradedNY account reported that Jian Bing Man, which specializes in Chinese crêpes, signed a lease at 120 First Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place.
However, on Monday, signage arrived for a completely different establishment — Chef Hans Asian Kitchen. Not sure at the moment what happened to Jian Bing Man ... or perhaps this is some kind of spin-off restaurant.
The previous tenant here, Doma Food and Drinks, a Korean bistro, didn't have much of a chance, opening in February 2020 — about six weeks before the PAUSE ... this was a new concept from the owners of the Tang, which opened in this space in July 2016.
