As first noted back on July 5, the Dumpling Shop is setting up house at 124 Second Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place.
The Shop's signage arrived on Monday...
Here's more about them via their website:
The Dumpling Shop (“TDS”) is a fast casual restaurant focusing primarily on recreating traditional Asian dumplings with internationally inspired flavor profiles. We push the flavor limits of what can serve as the filling to bring you original and bold dumplings that are familiar and exciting for dumpling aficionados as well as new fans. Here at TDS, we put a spotlight on the humble and ubiquitous dumpling and give it a platform to showcase its ability to transcend cultural boundaries and please the masses.
Their menu shows a variety of dumplings, including Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Buffalo Chicken and Korean Kimchi. They will also offer several noodle dishes and sides. (Find the menu here.)
A rent increase caused the previous tenant, San Loco, to shutter here in June 2017 after 21 years in business.
