Jiang Diner is on a break

We've fielded questions about the status of Jiang Diner at 309 E. Fifth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

The business has been closed this past week... and there isn't any notice on the premises to patrons at the well-regarded restaurant (try the Big Plate Chicken) about what's happening here. 

However, there is a post, dated July 18, on Instagram: "Jiang Diner has been in constant operation throughout this pandemic ... It is time for us to take a break. We will be back."

Jiang Diner debuted in the spring of 2019 "with a mission to introduce authentic Xinjiang-styled Northwestern Chinese food and culture to New York City."

You can follow them on Instagram for reopening info.

Spicy Village's BPC is much better than Jiang's, sorry to say.

Still, hope this really is a vacation and not a closing.
