Zeppelin Isn’t Coming to Church Street, But the Macao Trading Co. Is

Remember the Macao-themed restaurant Jay Kosmas told us about last year? Well, it turns out that it is coming to Tribeca, in the old Sugar space at 311 Church Street. The Macao Trading Company will be opening in September. The place, we’re told, will feature “Macanese specialties, like African chicken and hot prawns the size of small lobsters, [and] (Chanterelle) chef Keith Harry’s spice-driven menu will reflect the territory’s many culinary influences, such as Portuguese, Chinese and Southeast Asian.” Apparently, there will be dim sum carts and tropical cocktails, too. Better still, the restaurant, which will have two floors, will be open daily until 4 in the morning. That’s what Jay tells us, and we’re happy to hear it. Contrary to reports elsewhere of Zeppelin, Employees Only’s forties-themed sequel, coming to Church Street, EO’s Jason Kosmas tells us that Zeppelin is currently on hold.
