In early June, I wrote about the months of anticipation and mystery surrounding the opening of Xiao Ye, Eddie Huang of Baohaus‘ follow up restaurant serving a greater variety of Taiwanese street food. NY Mag incorrectly reported that it had already opened, several different sources were saying they had tasted the food, Eater.com even unveiled a menu, but there was no concrete information about an actual opening date.
My friends and I actually went to the location one Friday night hoping that it had secretly opened. Alas, it had not. Today, I received this message:
I’m part of the Baohaus/Xiao Ye team, and I promise you, TWese food in the LES is on the way! We were actually just at Yelp’s Country Club event last night with our Kim Jong’s ILL noodles.
Eddie’s cranking hard in the kitchen and we’re hammering out the last of the paperwork. If all goes well, we’ll be in there soon!
Thanks for the concern though, and I promise it’ll be worth the wait!
Well, thanks, Emery. I certainly hope so.
