Andy Ricker Closes Pok Pok Phat Thai on Rivington Street to Prepare for Brooklyn Move

Seems like forever ago that Baohaus actually held court in the tiny sub-level space at 137 Rivington Street. When Eddie Huang moved the business to Union Square in 2012, Portland chef Andy Ricker swooped in with Pok Pok Phat Thai. Now, nearly three years after its debut, Pok is packing up. It’s relocating to – you guessed it – Brooklyn. The Columbia Street Waterfront District.
The restaurant officially closed for service on Monday evening, with a formal farewell sign posted to the front door.
This location is now closed. We are gearing up to open a new Pok Pok Phat Thai in Brooklyn’s Columbia Street Waterfront District this fall. We appreciate your patronage here, and apologize for any inconvenience.
Given its pedigree as a haven for hospitality, it seems that the best fit for 137 Rivington is another restaurant of some sort. We’ll see what shakes out here.
