Gung Ho Shutters After Five Months


Gung Ho (680 Eighth Street), the little lunch spot from Seoul Patch pop-up chef Eric Ehler at the edge of the Design District that won decent praise from critic Jesse Hirsch, has closed after just five months. We're unclear if Ehler might have had a family emergency in his home state of Iowa to attend to (the Scoop notes that he tweeted from there last week), but regardless it looks like the place is dunzo. Ehler says he may be popping up elsewhere starting in May. [Scoop, Earlier]
