Beijing-based hot pot chain taking over the former Dunkin' Donuts storefront on 14th Street
First Lamb Shabu, a Beijing-based hot pot chain with more than 300 locations in China, is opening its first Manhattan outpost at 218 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue.
According to the Commercial Observer, the company, which has a location out in Flushing, signed a 10-year lease for the space with a $20,000-per-month rent.
The storefront has been empty for several years, ever since Dunkin' Donuts decamped for a smaller space on the block in August 2015.
