In Lower East Side food/restaurant news:
- Michael Huynh is changing the concept at 154 Orchard again. Bia Garden never caught on, so he planned a course correction, turning the place into an Asian tacos destination. Weeks after the new venture was supposed to open, however, Huynh tells Eater he’s changed his mind. The new plan: a Thai/Vietnamese restaurant called Andy ‘n’ Bao.
- Fatta Cuckoo on Clinton Street soft-opened this weekend. Via Twitter, they’re beckoning us to come by for cocktails (although we later found out they were closed Monday).
- Serious Eats checks out breakfast at Peels.
- Today at Baohaus: “$10 TV Dinner;” braised pork on rice, fish cakes with smoked ham hock, and eight treasure stir fry.
