Panda NYC suffered a slow death last summer, thanks in part to some poaching efforts by the Department of Health. The gallery-slash-nightspot had operated at 139 Chrystie Street for nigh on two years. Its replacement is nearly ready to rock and roll.

Almost immediately after the departure of its predecessor, work began on a new “sit-down” seafood establishment called The Boil. Construction finally wrapped a few weeks ago, and the space has been sitting pretty ever since. Storefront fixtures arrived last week, including illuminated signs and window leafing. Below is a quick peek inside the establishment, with bar up front and some dining in the rear (i.e. the mullet setup). Liquor license was activated by the State Liquor Authority earlier this month.

Arrival of The Boil marks yet another player in the nascent trend of seafood shacks sprouting all over the Lower East Side. Expect an opening in the coming days.
