Today is the highly-anticipated opening of Pok Pok NY on the Columbia Street Waterfront, Chef Andy Ricker’s first sit-down restaurant in NYC. UPDATE: It looks like the Thai joint is opening this Wednesday. The Thai restaurant is an offshoot of the extremely popular spot in Portland. Eater published photos of the interior late last week. And the New York Times had this to say: “The menu is divided into categories: specialties like game hen done sweet-and-sour and stuffed with lemon grass; dishes to share, including some from Issan, in northeastern Thailand, like spicy minced catfish salad; and copious one-dish meals involving noodles, including the Vietnamese cha ca la vong. Mr. Ricker will postpone lunch at first and might even do it from a truck.” The friends and family meal was last Friday. Any lucky readers get to try it out?
