Danny Ng's closed for renovation

  • 9

Just got back from lunch on Pell Street and passed by Danny Ng's which is closed. The sign says it's closed for renovation. Has he moved to Amazing 66?

  1. I passed by it today. I didn't check if it was open or not, but I noticed the sign had changed to read "ABC Chinese Restaurant" (or something like that). I think the Chinese name was still the same.

      FYI, the restaurant is closed for renovation but will not reopen with Danny Ng as it's chef. New owners and a new chef.

        Thank you, babychica and AppleSpam. I had wondered about what Danny Ng was doing.

          Someone from the Manhattan board mentioned awhile back that the chef and some of the serving staff from the original Danny Ng went to Amazing 66 on Mott. That's why the dishes there taste and look similar.

            Danny Ng was one of my most memorable Chinatown dining experiences. My friend and I pored over their lengthy and largely illegible handwritten Chinese menu and had a long discussion with the waiter before we finally decided what to order. Turned out to be well worth the effort.

            Planning to go to Amazing 66 sometime in the near future; I'll see if I can recreate the experience.

    2. I have been to the new restaurant ABC Chinese Restaurant and I thought that the food there was really good. The service was excellent. I been to both Danny Ng's and ABC Chinese Restaurant; I though ABC was so much better.

        its probably worth trying b/c alot of these ctown restaurants start out awesome
        and then they go downhill when the chef leaves

          The whole team of Danny Ng is now working at Amazing 66 (I believe it's the same chef!)
