New on Broadway: Wedgwood II
Another day, another Thai restaurant on Broadway. Wedgwood II is now tricking out tofu for the veg set. The vegetarian canteen, which replaces the short-lived I Love Wasabi, turned on the lights late last week.
Wedgwood joins a cadre of cheapish, local eateries to recently colonize central Broadway—a welcome contrast to the national chains bookending the street. Just a few storefronts down is the Italian eatery Panevino and month-old Pinto Thai Bistro. In the 200 block find Ni Sandwich and the also-vegetarian Highline, which sits across the street from Guanaco’s Tacos Pupuseria.
A sliver of space, Wedgwood is lined with handsome wood design throughout, and in the back, twee 3-D murals of trees add a splash of pizzazz. The menu, several pages deep, averages $10.
