Though he'd initially wanted to open "before the New Year," Pok Pok Wing's Andy Ricker sent an e-mail to some food media types last week explaining that it wouldn't happen. Grub was unfortunately unable to attend the impromptu preview party he announced in the same e-mail, but we did swing by the shop today to find a snazzy sign in place. A peek into the basement space showed that things are pretty close to done, and indeed, Ricker tells us he hopes to open early next week, if a fire inspection doesn't hold things up. Pok Pok Ny in Brooklyn, meanwhile, is slated for Winter 2012.
