Jianbing Newcomer ‘Bing Kitchen’ on Orchard Street Sidelined Due to ‘Water Damage’
Bing Kitchen is off to a rocky start on Orchard Street.
The snack shop newcomer, which specializes in the Chinese street-cart staple “Jianbing,” has been closed for the last week due to ambiguous “water damage” on-premise. That much is made clear via handwritten sign on the front door.
While the “tomorrow” timeline was crossed out, ownership confirmed to us in an email that “flooding from the top floors” caused the aforementioned damage. The plan is to reopen by end of week or so.
Bing Kitchen opened at 71 Orchard Street in early June, having replaced The Cast after the rocker leather boutique moved across the street. The concept is the brainchild of Aaron Gallentine and chef-artist Clio Goodman, whose popular Puddin’ NYC shop on St. Mark’s Place closed last year.
