Hey Hey Canteen Hey Hey Canteen

Shuttered Cantonese restaurant 2 Duck Goose starts its new life as Hey Hey Canteen tonight. Owner Kay Ch'ien closed 2 Duck Goose last fall to rework the menu and hopped off to Asia to gather inspiration for Hey Hey Canteen. The result: a smorgasbord of Asian-inspired dishes like sesame peanut noodles, lemongrass chicken wings, eggplant fries, and a caesar salad made with chrysanthemum leaves. Executive chef Carlos Barrera, who previously worked in the kitchen at 2 Duck Goose, also offers a fried chicken sandwich with a crust made out of ramen.

New dishes at the 43-seat restaurant, at 400 Fourth Avenue, are more casual than 2 Duck Goose, which gained acclaim for its modern take on Cantonese entrees like roast pork and duck. Hey Hey's menu includes five noodle options, which can be substituted for a gluten-free zucchini noodle, and five proteins that can be added on top, including a garlic shrimp and a roasted pork. Drinks include Stone Street coffee, Pursuit of Tea tea, and cocktails like a Sesarhai, a rye-based drink with almond chai and five spice sesame dust.
