Yunnan Kitchen Coming to 79 Clinton St.

The storefront at 79 Clinton St. has been shuttered since the Lucky variety store closed last year.

It looks like 79 Clinton St., the former Lucky variety store and once-rumored Falai expansion, finally has a new tenant. Later this month, Community Board 3’s liquor license committee will field an application from Yunnan Kitchen, a new Asian restaurant whose owners are seeking a beer and wine license.

We reached out to the proprietors today and hope to have more details of their plans to share soon. In the meantime, Erika Chou tells us: “We are opening a regional Chinese concept; bringing the flavors of China’s most bountiful province, Yunnan, to the LES.”
