It’s been a while since Hoboken’s newest dumpling shop, Brooklyn Dumpling, shared an update about its opening date. Back in the fall, there were talks of it opening within the month as it had passed its health inspection on September 21st, but it appears it’s finally coming to fruition. Brooklyn Dumpling Shop will *officially* open its Hoboken doors Thursday, February 16th. Read on to learn more about Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, opening in Hoboken at 514 Washington Street.

The Space

Over four years ago, there was a fire in the restaurant Dili Junction, and since then, the mid-Washington Street fast-casual spot had been closed.

Last year, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop announced it was coming to the Mile Square, with its first location at 1st Avenue in Manhattan opening officially in spring of 2021. Before it even opened, however, the business announced it was expanding to a second location in Hoboken at 514 Washington Street.

Now, after much anticipation,  the Hoboken franchise will officially open Thursday, February 16th. This outpost is owned + operated by Jersey City native Charles Tum-Baah, who is “excited to bring Brooklyn Dumpling Shop to Hoboken NJ,” per a press release. “Partnering with a franchise that has a household name like Brooklyn Dumpling Shop carries a prestige + subtle touch that compliments the Hoboken swagger.”

If you thought turning traditional diner dishes into dumpling form was unique enough, you’re in for a treat, depending on your current dining out preferences.

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop — as a concept — will be an automated experience. As a direct effect of COVID-19 and restaurants aiming to offer customers a contact-less free exchange, this company has reinvented the concept.

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop will have glass compartments with food that open by scanning your smartphone. See here for a visual of the process.

Each compartment is temperature-controlled, keeping the food fresh at all times. The compartments flash red when an order is placed, yellow when the order is two minutes from coming out, and green when it’s ready to be picked up. This news came last year just a few weeks after the official opening of Jersey City’s Automat Kitchen, which had a similar concept, proving that contactless dining experiences are gaining some traction.

The Menu

All of the dumplings on the menu come in three per order and were inspired by classic diner dishes, including pastrami, Reuben, Philly cheesesteak, lamb “gyro,” turkey club, cheeseburger, chicken satay, peanut butter and jelly, chicken parm, pizza, and more.

The variety of breakfast dumplings include croissant-shaped dumplings, bacon, egg + cheese, spicy sausage + egg, and the newly-launched Cro’Sumplings. For the seafood lovers, there will be shrimp, lobster, crab, scallion, and lobster spring roll. Additionally, there will be chicken, lobster, and shrimp wontons.

For veggie eaters, there will be edamame + white truffle broth, an impossible burger, and crispy eggplant. Variations of soup and spring rolls are also on the menu.
