Drunken Dumpling returns

Drunken Dumpling reopened this past Thursday at 137 First Ave. between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street. 

The family-owned restaurant specializing in Chinese potstickers, pork buns and jumbo soup dumplings had been closed since the NY PAUSE of March 2020. 

According to its Instagram account, DD is in a soft-reopen mode at the moment with a more limited menu. New hours: Sunday-Thursday from 2 p.m. to midnight, with a 2 a.m. close on Friday and Saturday.

TBH, the place looked like a goner in late 2020 and early 2021 with stacks of mail piling up inside. However, DD announced earlier this fall that they'd be back.

DD opened in the fall of 2016 and received favorable press for its gigantic soup dumplings created by the mother-son team here.
