​Some neighbors in the vicinity of the former Wing Shoon Seafood Restaurant breathed a sigh of relief upon learning the replacement would likely remain a low-key Chinese joint. As previously reported, the corner space at 165 East Broadway will soon sprout a Cantonese restaurant called Wu’s Wonton King. Laborers were spotted yesterday installing the new marquee that trades the previous silver look for brass. It’s complete with double dragons and large lettering.

Application materials submitted to Community Board 3 indicate that the establishment seeks beer-wine with hours of 7am to 11pm daily. There will be 9 tables and 72 seats. Wu’s received approval as part of CB3’s fast-tracking system whereby applicants agree to a strict set of stipulations ahead of time. No concrete opening date, but given the state of the interior, best bet is within a few weeks.

Here is the menu for Wu’s Wonton King:
