Chinatown Brasserie on the Auction Block

With Andrew Carmellini opening a French restaurant in the former Chinatown Brasserie space, John McDonald and Joe Ng’s upscale Chinese place needs to clear out. Seems that day is today: Per the latest dispatch from Amodeo Auctions, a bunch of walk-ins, chairs, “mahagony wall units,” “China dinnerware,” and flatware are up for grabs at 3 p.m. Guess the Chinatown team won’t need all that stuff in their new, smaller digs. If Asian isn’t really your decor scheme, a Hooters in New Jersey is also selling everything off. [Amodeo Auctions]
