Known for its epic eats like Siu Mai dumplings, and rice and poke bowls, the eatery’s owner, Andrew Wong, said his reason for closing the business is the increasing cost of operating a small restaurant. Wild Rice’s last day of service will be on New Year’s Eve, after which it will be shutting its doors for good on January 1, 2019.
