True to their word, Great N.Y. Noodletown returned to the ranks of the living on Saturday. The Chinatown classic at 28 Bowery – in business for over three decades – had been closed the prior week for a round of renovations. Mainly for ADA compliance, we’re told.
Indeed, some of the purported modifications included making the restaurant wheelchair accessible (removed one step for a ramp), construction of two new unisex restrooms (also wheelchair accessible), and installation of a new air conditioning unit.
N.Y. Noodletown first opened at 28 Bowery in 1981, but didn’t adopt the “Great” prefix until years later. It’s been a Cantonese staple for the ensuing thirty-five years. Anthony Bourdain most famously dined here in a New York City-themed episode of The Layover several years ago.
