New on Broadway: Wedgwood II

The latest Thai restaurant to settle into the 400 block specializes in vegetarian.

Wedgwood II is now open at 420 Broadway.

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.
