The Doyers Street classic is expected to open a satellite outpost at 10 Kenmare Street (aka 168 Bowery) in the coming months. There isn’t much info out there at the moment, but a branded Twitter handle did launch over the weekend.
Update: a spokesman tells Eater that this is a pared down version of Nom Wah. It’s a lunch counter for quick grab-and-go.
This storefront at 10 Kenmare is already in the family, so to speak. Second-generation owner Wilson Tang also co-owns the Old Bowery Station pop-up space that’s been operating here for the last few years.
This is the second such expansion for the establishment in as many years, following closely behind the Philadelphia outpost in May 2015.
Nom Wah is almost one hundred years old, having opened as a tea parlor and bakery in 1920. Wilson Tang inherited the family business from his uncle in 2010. Wally Tang had owned the place since 1974.
