Although he didn’t mince words when Time Out New York gave Xiao Ye a less-than-flattering review, Eddie Huang’s reaction to Sam Sifton’s no-star appraisal of his restaurant has been uncharacteristically subdued. Huang took to Twitter last night to write, “@samsifton fair enough. thanks man, appreciate the feedback. changes coming…” Huang followed that up by writing he’s “off the grid” until Saturday; after that, one could speculate that the steamed cabbage that Sifton described as tasting of “cardboard and water” and the “pale, flabby” beef rib may undergo something of a face-lift.
