LES Bites: Yunnan Kitchen, Rizzo’s Pizza, Best Breakfast

Today’s Lower East Side food notes: a new chef at Yunnan Kitchen, Rizzo’s Pizza debuts on Monday and more…

  • A few days ago Yunnan Kitchen chef Travis Post announced he was leaving the restaurant to pursue other projects. Via twitter and Linked-in, we now learn that his successor will be Kevin Chun.  A veteran of Macao Trading Company and Soho House (among other establishments), he was on the job on Clinton Street last night.
  • Rizzo’s Pizza, the Astoria import, has its grand opening Monday at 17 Clinton St., beginning at 4 p.m.
