Since yesterday's news that Chinatown favorite Mei Lai Wah is going to reopen tomorrow as Mai Li Wah, we've received a couple vital updates from the restaurant's fans in the neighborhood. One tipster writes in to confirm the Friday opening and to assert that the prices, menu, and employees will all remain the same. Tipster number two confirms:
"MLW is definitely poised to open very quickly. The very best news is that this morning, after leaving my building to go to work, I looked in and saw my two very favorite workers from the old MLW behind the counter! it was the gentleman with jet black hair...and the very thin guy with the grey hair in a buzz cut. The person who lives in my building...told me that he ran into the head chef and the head chef said that he is returning, too. happy days on bayard street!"Happy days indeed. Bring on the pork buns.
