Wilson Tang’s popular Chinese restaurant, Fung Tu, remains temporarily sidelined due to a gas leak in its building at Orchard Street. A sign posted in the window over the weekend announces the closure, and that reopening is likely “several days” from fruition.

Unfortunately due to a gas leak, Fung Tu currently has no gas and will be closed for the next several days. We hope to reopen next week. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Given that the Department of Buildings is taking such issues more seriously in the wake of the Second Avenue Explosion, this could be an extended hiatus. Fung Tu opened nearly two years ago and was quick to snag awards and accolades. Its principal, Wilson Tang, is currently the second-generation owner of Nom Wah Tea Parlor on Doyers Street.
