Four more tipsters tell us Bed, Bath & Beyond is opening in the former home of Food Emporium on 90th and Broadway. Construction workers told three of our tipsters about the opening, and a fourth called the construction hotline. It’s not clear if it will be a traditional Bed, Bath or a store called Harmon Face Values, a health and beauty business that is owned by Bed Bath. The company never got back to us the last time we asked for confirmation on this tip. A sign says it will be completed in September, Rachel notes. Thanks to Rachel for the photo and Alan, Terry and Gordon for the tips.
A dim sum restaurant called Jing Fong plans to open in the former home of Planet Sushi on 78th and Amsterdam. Jing Fong’s Chinatown location holds 800 people, but the new spot will be much more modest, with 60 seats inside and 40 outside, according to the Times. It’s set to open in about two months. Here are some images of the food they serve.
There’s been quite a Chinese for revival on the UWS in recent years, with Red Farm, Han Dynasty, and Xian Famous Foods also opening locations. Thanks to Jackie, Matthew and several tipsters for sending in the info.
