Simpson Wong sends word that his eponymous West Village restaurant Wong is closing for a total summer revamp. The three-year-old restaurant will close after service on July 31, and do away with its "Asian locavore" menu in favor of Vietnamese street food. The new concept, called Vuong (that's the Vietnamese version of Wong), is slated to open in mid-September. Back in 2012 Wong had the distinction of being the very first restaurant Pete Wells reviewed for the Times, at which point the critic gave it two stars. No word yet on whether the new menu will continue along Wong's Asian fusion trajectory, or go a more traditional route.
