Last week, Tangram’s developers announced that it has signed 10-year leases with Ju Qi, a restaurant specializing in authentic Beijing cuisine, and Meet Fresh, a Taiwan-based dessert bar.
This is Ju Qi’s first location in the U.S., and the second New York location for Meet Fresh. Both are slated to open in 2020.
Altogether, Tangram will include two residential towers, a food hall, a beer garden, curated office space and other amenities. Earlier this year, Xiao Long Kan Hot Pot also signed a 10-year lease at Tangram.
Ju Qi, which is headquartered in Beijing, has 20 locations across China and one in Sydney. It has signature dishes like creative mashed potato, special fried rice, Peking duck, barbecue lamb and more.
Meet Fresh, which also has a location in the East Village, is originally from Taiwan. It has more than 1,000 stores across Asia, New Zealand and Australia. It offers fresh, natural and Instagrammable treats like taro balls, herbal grass jelly, mochi, mango shaved ice, boba tofu pudding, green tea with whipped cream and more.
