China Fun, a Chinese restaurant on Columbus Avenue between 71st and 72nd streets, closed its doors this week, months after a fire forced it to close temporarily.
The February fire, which apparently started in the restaurant’s kitchen, forced it to close for months — they still did deliveries but sent the food from their Upper East Side location. The restaurant also got a C rating from the Health Department earlier this year.
China Fun was a decent neighborhood spot with all of the standards plus dim sum. Eileen, who sent us the photo above, said she’d miss the Peking duck and dim sum in particular.
Don’t fret too much. We have lots of restaurant and bar openings to report, but haven’t gotten a chance to write about them. Expect more news in the next few days.
Thanks to Eileen and James for the tips.
