Fung Tu Finally Has its Gas Line Restored After Two Months Without

Fung Tu is now cooking with gas. Quite literally.
Con Edison finally gave Fung Tu the proverbial thumbs up to reconnect gas service to 22 Orchard Street, thus concluding two months of roughing it with an electronic kitchen. The inspection reportedly went down last Friday. Residents of the five-story tenement also saw the restoration of their cooking gas.
As previously reported, Fung Tu first lost its gas hookup in early July. Wilson Tang and company got creative in the kitchen, and offered patrons a “no gas menu” to help stop the hemorrhaging, as it were. Word on the street during the ordeal suggested that construction work at the forthcoming Scarr’s Pizza next door may have caused the gas problem. However, proprietor Scarr Pimentel maintains that the issue pre-dated his involvement at 22 Orchard.
