The plywood completely obscured the two storefronts here... Giggles Convenience, an unlicensed cannabis shop, which was already closed.... and the very-much-open Cho-Ko, a homey Japanese restaurant serving a variety of ramen and gyoza.
Several people we spoke with figured the place was closed... would-be diners had to navigate a plywood tunnel to enter during the sidewalk repair work.
You can find the Cho-Ko website here. They offer delivery via the usual platforms. Phone: (212) 388-0885.
Their listed hours are noon to 2 a.m. daily, with an 11 p.m. Sunday close.
