I recently read on some site that the East Ocean Resturaunt, 159 E 55th St
(not the one in Chinatown) had closed. Does anybody live near there, and if so you know what has come in there. 55th street is about a ten block deviation for my typical route, and I really don't want to walk the whole way there and back just to find out that there an empty space. On the other hand if a new Chinese resutant has come in in its place (and, within Manhattan one chinese resturaunt simply taking over the space of a defucnt one is a far from unusual ocurrence) then I would feel it might be worth the trip to try the new place out. so to anyone on this board who lives around there have you noticed what is there now?
