Another Loop restaurant has closed its doors.
Wong's Wok (565 Melville Avenue)
wasn't open during prime lunch hours when we stopped by today, confirming what a reader witnessed on Monday. A big red sign on the door reads simply “closed.” The phone number has been disconnected.
The bare-bones family-owned Chinese spot has been at its current location since 2008
. It relocated there after first opening in the Market in the Loop, which later became Racanelli's and then the Market Pub House and then Social House II (oh the humanity!
) and now W Karaoke Lounge
. It was known for its American-friendly fare (General Tso's, beef noodle soup) and cheap prices.
The Loop has seen a spate of closures in the last year, including most recently the well-reviewed Doughocracy
and Loop Living Furniture
. However! Two years after construction finished, we're told the Loop trolley is going to start running one of these
months, so, happy days will surely be here again. Believe it!
