Mr. Wonton Gets a Sprucing Up

Mr. Wonton, one of the few sit-down Chinese restaurants in the neighborhood, and regarded by some as the best (even though that isn't really saying much), has gotten some new signage.

Brownstoner yesterday wondered if the restaurant, on the corner of Seventh And Berkeley, was closed for good, but it's indeed very much alive. For the past several years the signs have been unappealingly peeling, so this is definitely an improvement, even though it's a little difficult to read. No word as to whether they plan on fixing up the interior as well.

Would prefer they spruce up the menu rather than the outside. Chinese food options are, by and large, abysmal in PS.

Not true, Ben K.

The new Szechuan menu at Tofu on 7th is incredible. Trust me. My Chinese born wife says it's some of the best you can find in these parts. Don't be fooled by the exterior or interior space, the food is great. She also doesn't mind Mr. Wonton from time to time.

Agree with Harry...the ma po tofu and the double cooked fish are incredible.
They'll adjust their level of spiciness to your taste, but be adventurous and turn it up a bit.

We go to Brooklyn's Chinatown when we want Chinese food. I have lived here 25 years and never been to Mr. WonTon, the name turns me off

Tofu is pretty fantastic since they got their new chef.

Well Mr. Wonton is BYOB if that's your thing. And Tofu on 7th has the best dumplings in the neighboorhood. None of that gummy thick wrapper. I'm just adding my voice to the chorus on them.
