Just coming off the opening of his nightclub restaurant Baotique, restaurateur Michael 'Bao' Huynh has a new concept up his sleeve. He's partnering with Nicole Van Croft a Playboy Bunny who often hangs at Baotique and Covet, on a burger, fried chicken, and waffles concept on St. Mark's Place. Croft, who Bao says makes "the best southern style fried chicken and waffles" will be the culinary force behind the place, which will be located at 125 St. Mark's Pl. The tentative name is Bao & Buny.
But that's not all. He's also closed Viet-Mexican place Baorrito and is moving it to 111 St. Mark's Place, right next to Crif Dogs, and is turning the old Baorrito space into another branch of his LES burger joint Mikey's Burgers. DOB 111 is still set to reopen as Barbao at 115 St. Mark's (on the other side of Crif).
