The Pot Sticker on Waverly Place Goes Sichuanese (With Perhaps a Little Skullduggery) [San Francisco]

soupçon | Jul 12, 201008:46 PM     22

Wandering by The Pot Sticker on Waverly Place, a restaurant I always wanted to like but never could, I noticed today it had undergone an extensive makeover and was defining itself as a Sichuanese restaurant. I picked up a paper menu from a table outside and sure enough, except for some sops to the Mongolian beef set in the lunch special and dinner sets menu, it now boasts a very ambitious Sichuan menu with some other Western and Northern Chinese specialties thrown in.

According to my Chinatown source, The Pot Sticker is now run by a female cousin (and former employee) of Michelle, who runs the dining room at Z&Y Restaurant and is the wife of Z&Y's chef Han Lijun. The new chef at the revamped Pot Sticker was, until recently, a subordinate in the Z&Y kitchen. These developments occurred without the blessing of the Hans and were, in fact, hatched while Michelle was vacationing in China.

I have a feeling I haven't heard the last of this story.
