King Fung Garden has Reopened
They were closed for one day for "cleaning".
??? All reports I read were that they were closing for good this past Monday. Did they temporarily re-open for a few more days?
I guess that "closing" might not have been the greatest word. I went there prior to closing and this is the story I was told:
The previous owners of King Fung in Chinatown sold the restaurant to another family and did indeed close. The chef has now joined his wife in their Brookline restaurant (creatively named King Fung Garden II) - they're consolidating into one space (which is larger and has a better kitchen).
I'm not sure that they knew that the new owners would go ahead and reopen with the same name and the same menu. I haven't been since the changeover, but I really liked the food there prior to them moving. Someone will undoubtedly post a review of post-changeover KFG soon.
As far as who is right or wrong... I guess it depends on whether you consider a change of ownership closing. The previous owners probably thought that they were when they sold the place.
