The East Village is about to get another dumpling option.
Signage is now up for Dumpling Lab at 214 E. Ninth St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. (Thanks jba for the photo!)
The Dumpling Lab website describes this as "a contemporary Tsingtao-inspired" restaurant.
Tsingtao, known for its beer, has rich offerings of the most flavorful seafood in Northern China. Seafood dumplings and Chinese tapas are the main focus at Dumpling Lab.
Based on the photos of the dining room, Dumpling Lab looks to be more of a sit-down experience rather than a grab-and-go spot.
No word just yet on an opening date.
