​The reign of Wu’s Wonton King has commenced on East Broadway. Three months of build-out culminated yesterday in the official debut, transforming the old Wing Shoon after more than a year of dormancy.

Multicolored streamers are in place; the red carpet (nay, mat) is rolled out for the occasion; token tanks for live seafood and menus together grace the windows. The dining room is whitewashed, and feels like a grand gallery space. Kitchen up front, dining in the rear. Take a look.

As you might expect, the menu boasts dozens of selections, and has since expanded from our last write-up. There are also breakfast options, which put it in direct competition with the popular rice noodle cart that sits out front every morning.

Wu’s Wonton King carries a beer-wine license.
