Track New Turtle Bay Bon Chon Online

Last week Grub Street reported that a new Bon Chon will be opening on 51st and 2nd Ave., and this morning Lunch’er “Joyce” was kind enough to send along these photos.  It may be technically out of bounds, but if you work in Midtown East it means no more trekking down to K-Town for fried chicken!  Unlike the two locations in south Midtown (on 38th btw. 7+8th, and 5th btw. 32+33rd) this new location is actually owned by a former manager of the Bon Chon on John Street (not to be confused with the one on Chambers which recently lost its “Chon”.)  Our Downtown site always had good things to say about that location, so we’re guessing this one should be just as good.

They’ve launched a website at, and you can track their construction progress on this WordPress blog they set up.  They’re hoping to open in early 2011.
