The chef — known for the ABC sitcom based on his memoir "Fresh Off the Boat" and Viceland series "Huang's World" — will open the restaurant at 48 Bowery on the Lower East Side-Chinatown border, according to a video posted to Huang's Instagram account.
Baohaus first started slinging its bao steamed-bun sandwiches on the Lower East Side at 137 Rivington St. before opening a second, larger location on East 14th Street in 2011. The original spot shuttered soon after.
The new spot is seeking a full liquor license and will appear before Community Board 3's State Liquor Authority Subcommittee next month with their request, according to documents on file with the board. Ultimately the SLA will decide if the venue gets to serve booze.
The restaurant is slated to open later this year, in the fall or winter, according to property manager Jonathan Chu.
Huang did not immediately return a request for comment.
