Just thought I'd let people know that a new branch of Congee Village just opened on the Bowery, just north of Delancy, sandwiched between a bunch of kitchen supply shops and that club Crash Mansion. I stopped in last night and grabbed a menu, and the hostess told me that despite a different name (Bowery Congee), they are indeed owned by the same person that owns Congee Village.
The menu looks pretty much the same, except now they offer delivery! I don't think the other branch does.
I'm not sure why a restaurant would open another branch 2 blocks west of itself, but in any case, I'm excited to eat there.
