Your addiction will need to wait. The highly-regarded Great N.Y. Noodletown is temporarily sidelined. Closed for business since Monday, the Chinatown cheap eats outpost is undergoing some broad, albeit out of the blue “repairs.”
Bilingual signage attached to the shuttered gate announces that the work should be completed by the end of the week. Reopening is slated for Saturday (September 9).
The dining room is already under the knife as it relates to the following permit from the Department of Buildings: “INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR RENOVATION OF AN EXIST. RESTAURANT WITH REPAIR WALL, PARTITIONS AND A NEW EXTERIOR CONC. INCLINED.”
Moreover, there are no Health Department violations to speak of, or closure demands.
N.Y. Noodletown first opened at 28 Bowery in 1981, but didn’t adopt the “Great” prefix until years later. It’s been a Cantonses staple for the ensuing three decades. Anthony Bourdain most famously dined here in a New York City-themed episode of The Layover several years ago.
