The New Cottage, an update of the Szechuan Chinese restaurant that closed on 77th and Amsterdam last year, opened on Wednesday on 78th and Broadway, the former home of La Caridad. In fact, the La Caridad signs are still up on the building.
The New Cottage has some similarities to the former location, including lunch specials and a long menu with a wide variety of foods — including some like Pad Thai that are from other parts of Asia.
Gretchen, who sent in the menu photos below, said that there was a line outside already waiting for tables on Wednesday. She’s already excited about spending Jewish Christmas there.
It’s open from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m., 7 days a week.
