David Selig’s Asian fusion restaurant, Rice, closed up shop back in late April, as first reported by Eater. Shortly thereafter, the joint was quickly jailed behind a massive plywood shed, with word that 292 Elizabeth Street would soon become the flagship Manhattan location for the quirky Siggy’s Good Food.

As of last week, the storefront metamorphosis completed the Pupa stage of development, as it were, and is nearly ready for full flight. The plywood was peeled away, and the colorfully cartoonish Siggy’s sign affixed to its facade. Photos on the official Facebook page show a bright, furnished interior dominated by wooden decor.
