A taste of Taiwan awaits at 886, a modern Taiwanese restaurant on St. Marks Place in the East Village. Restaurant vets Eric Sze (Momofuku, The Tang), Andy Chuang (The Tang), and Stefani Kung are the forces behind 886 offering izakaya-style dining in a neon purple space. Look for playful dishes like "Three Cup" Glazed Chicken Wings, a Taiwanese take on buffalo wings, and Sausage Party with homemade pork sausage, sticky rice, peanuts and cured duck yolk. Other dishes include an oyster-shrimp omelette, pineapple & shrimp, and Drunken Clam with Thai basil.  886 is also offering a selection of beer, wine and sake "on tap" from Brooklyn Kura, New York's first sake brewery. >>
