‘Boys Don’t Cry’ over Nom Wah Tu on Orchard Street
After an inactive few weeks, the space formerly known as Nom Wah Tu on Orchard Street is back. As a total reimagining, too.
Boys Don’t Cry flips the former fast-casual restaurant into an Instagram-friendly bar. Pretty much the same layout. And the multi-colored neon chickens remain in the windows. Ownership of the new venture is not immediately available, but the liquor license is still under the former establishment with Wilson Tang and Jonathan Wu.
You’ll recall that Nom Wah Tu, the smaller Orchard Street outpost of the original, shut down suddenly in early March. The business had been one week shy of its six-month anniversary. For restaurant co-owner Wilson Tang, it had been the follow-up to the likewise acclaimed Fung Tu.
