Xie Xie Tries to Cool Controversy
Xie Xie's Fish Cha Ca La Vong.
Those looking to get a Top Chef Angelo Sosa fix by trying to spy on him at Xie Xie, there will be no Cha Ca La Vong for you ... at least for a bit.
Midtown Lunch and Eater commenters complained about the lack of A/C in the place, with Midtown Lunch accusing Xie Xie of trying to save money. Now Eater reports that Sosa has shuttered the eatery for a variety of reasons, including small renovations and getting the A/C functioning again. Hopefully you'll be able to enjoy your Sosa-spying in relative, sweat-free peace someday soon. Midtown Lunch has posted an apology.
