The store is on Main St but there is no mention of it on their website. Is it an official branch, or a knockoff?
I called the Bayard St. shop and was told the one in Flushing is not connected.
They are related, there was a family dispute. The guy who runs the flushing and possibly the noho locations is a member of the family who opened the chinatown shop.
Exactly- about a year / year and a half ago while visiting the Bayard store they were hyping the Flushing location. A few weeks later they were warning us to beware of fakes.
Where exactly is the Main St. locations? Sounds like it's worth a try with the kids after dinner at Joe's Shanghai.
Quite a bit south of the downtown area – walkable in nice weather but not (at least for me) in summer heat: 59-16 Main St. (between 59th and 60th Aves.), 718-353-6889.
The Flushing shop has some different flavors but quality is equal. Not really subway accessible.
Yeah, it's a pretty good walk - almost to the LIE. You can easily reach there on a bus. I asked the people at the Bayard store today, and they claim not to be affiliated with them. Ricky's explanation seems very reasonable.
