Alright, I’m starting to feel ridiculous about being in Taiwan and blogging incessantly about a Taiwanese restaurant in New York, but I’ve been waiting for this place to open for so long, I have to see this thing through to the end.
Eater.com is reporting that Xiao Ye’s status is “Certified Open” (emphasis theirs). I’m not sure who certifies these things, but the people at NY Mag got it totally wrong a couple months ago when they proclaimed Xiao Ye had “Recently Opened!” (punctuation theirs) when the Blue Elm, the space’s previous tenants, were still open for business.
So if it’s true and the day has finally come and Xiao Ye is indeed open, by all means, go and enjoy and let me know how it is. I’ll be sure to check it out as soon as I’m back in the city.
