Uncle Boon’s Restaurant to Replace Seven Spring
Two restaurants have tried their luck at 7 Spring Street within the last five years. Both met the same fate. Closure. Noble Food and Wine arrived just off the Bowery back in 2007 and would beget the similarly-named Japanese-American fusion spot Seven Spring Food and Wine three years later. In mid-June, however, the latter eatery decided to throw in the towel and instead focus on the catering business. Newspaper arrived onsite shortly thereafter. In its place, a Thai-American joint called Uncle Boon’s Restaurant will open later this fall.
Co-owners Larry and Richard Chunk penned a rather lengthy letter to former patrons, outlining next steps and the forthcoming new kid on the block. We’ve published an excerpt below:
For the past 2 years Seven Spring Food and Wine has been privileged to serve you and we have been blessed with your support in return, we thank our fans for their consistent 4 stars review on Yelp and other food sites. We have created a place that brought strangers together, whom some has become our long lasting friends. We were the venue for celebrations large and small, although an end of an era, it is also the beginning of a new one for Richard and me. Seven Spring Food and Wine is now Seven Spring Caterer. We are eternally grateful to those that have graced our tables, supported our causes, and have made Seven Spring the institution that it has become.
I am excited to tell you we have passed our torch to Uncle Boon’s Restaurant effective July 1st, 2012 and coming fall they will bring in Thai-American Cuisines to this community. Both Ann and Matt are experienced Chefs whom is currently running a successful business in Shelter’s Island, NY call REDDINGS MARKET.
Once again, thank you for your supports and we truly will miss you and this place.
Larry and Richard Chung
