Fort Lee’s Business District Alliance Holds Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Wok Bar

FORT LEE, NJ- The Business District Alliance (BDA) of Fort Lee, Mayor Mark Sokolich, Fort Lee Council Members and the Fort Lee Chamber of Commerce gathered to celebrate the grand opening of Wok Bar with a ribbon cutting ceremony on March 28, 2017.  The “make your own food” style Wok Bar is located at 200 Main St. in Fort Lee, NJ. The counter service style restaurant offers residents traditional Chinese cuisine with a unique twist that allows customers to completely customize their meals.

Customers place their selected vegetables, meats, and sauces in a bowl, bring it up to the counter and pay by the weight of their bowl. Once weighed, customers can select if they want their food in a “Spicy Hot Pot” or “Spicy Dry Hot Pot” style. When asked what sets Wok Bar apart from other restaurants in Fort Lee, owner Ken Piao said, “The sauces that we use are only found in China, you can not buy them in many places throughout the United States, I think people will enjoy the traditional Chinese cuisine while also controlling everything that goes into their meal.”

The atmosphere provides a simple, minimalistic design with traditional Asian influences to all customers. Located in the heart of Fort Lee, Wok Bar can serve as a quick lunch stop or as the perfect place to relax and enjoy your meal. Owner Ken Piao is excited to bring this custom dining experience to Fort Lee, adding, “I wanted to add to the Asian culture that is already present in Fort Lee, this style of service is very common in Asian countries and I wanted to bring it here for residents to experience.”

Fort Lee BDA Executive Director, Stuart Z. Koperweis, commented, “Wok Bar is a great addition to Main Street. They offer a unique experience forall to experiment with their meal as they try something new.”
