Chinatown owner Ronald Cheng’s new restaurant, Street, is now open. It took over former downstairs neighbor Musashino’s old spot on Greystone Drive. His Chinese restaurant occupies the rest of the building.
The name comes from its focus, Asian street food, which Cheng researched extensively with international trips. For lunch, the boxed specials by the various cities Cheng visited during his research trips: Seoul (bulgogi), Tokyo (teriyaki chicken, sushi), Hong Kong (roast duck), Taipei (fried pork chops). Sushi offerings take advantage of Musashino’s previous setup, dishing out rolls to nigiri. Dinner focuses on snacks, soups, and various yakitori. The decor follows suit with kimonos on display and kung fu films played on televisions.
Before settling on the current menus, during soft opening, the menu took a free-for-all approach, including pho, dim sum dumplings, Hawaiian-style burritos, and, for some reason, lasagna.
Musashino announced it was moving last spring into Fino’s shuttered space. With the newly-vacant spot, Cheng revealed his plans for the street food concept. The essential sushi restaurant wrapped up its original location at Greystone Drive in May, and quickly reopened this month. Cheng also runs three locations of Chinatown.
Street is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday; until 10:30 p.m. Friday; and from 5 to 10:30 p.m. on Saturday.
