Grand Sichuan at 125 Canal Street Closes
A reliable restaurant standby at the monumental mouth of the Manhattan Bridge is down, but possibly not out for the count. Grand Sichuan at 125 Canal Street is closed at the moment but promises a return later this year.

Yesterday morning, a number of Boogie readers contacted us regarding the fate of this “original” Grand Sichuan location. Apparently the Chinese joint closed weeks ago, well off the radar; gates have been drawn ever since. Explanation for the shutter is renovations presently transpiring inside 125 Canal Street. However, the outgoing message on their phone line confirms the news, and informs patrons that the date of return is the “end of October.” Seems rather suspect, especially since we’re hearing otherwise, but we’ll keep you in the know either way.
Grand Sichuan (often spelled Szechuan) opened at this point of transiency – buses, fast-food, etc. – roughly fifteen years ago, keeping the neighborhood in cheap ethnic eats.
