Kent takes over Vanessa's Dumpling House on 14th Street
Bargain-eats favorite Vanessa's Dumpling House recently closed at 220 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue for what the sign on the gate described as a "modernization."
The Dumpling House is back open, though Vanessa's name has been replaced by Kent's on the marquee.
EVG regular Stephen Popkin stopped by on Friday as the Kent's team was prepping to reopen for the weekend...
Here's his field report: "The place was looking mighty clean but not renovated — it was exactly the same inside. The same friendly staff was there to great me ... I’m very happy."
No word at the moment who Kent might be — aside from, presumably, the new owner. (Or it's just a random name.) This location is no longer on the Vanessa's website.
