Han Dynasty, the Sichuan restaurant that originated in Old City, will be opening its second New York location this year. It could even come in the next two months.
The 200-seat, 5,000-square-foot restaurant will be opening at 215 W. 85th St. in the Upper West Side in Manhattan, according to Mark Allan, director of operations. It will be the restaurant group's eighth restaurant overall.
Han Dynasty opened its first 50-seat New York location in 2013 at 90 3rd Ave. in the East Village. Opening the second location will be a test to see the concept's success, Allan said.
