A chef at popular Asian wings spot SO (1010 Bryant Street at 8th) apparently stormed out and forced the closure of the restaurant after getting one too many whiny customers Thursday night. Somebody clearly asked about gluten-free items, because one of the angry things the chef put in his “we’re closed” sign on the door was “[we] don’t give a shit about gluten free.”
Customers also probably ask whether SO uses MSG (they do) a little too often, because that was front and center on the sign, right after, “We are closed because of YOU … (customers).”
Also, according to an employee who spoke to Eater, there was an incident involving a party who refused to pay their bill because their food was too spicy. Anyway, the chef just “needed to cool off” and they’re back open today.
Sidenote: MSG is delicious.
