For anyone who loves great dumplings, Hoboken’s newest dumpling shop’s opening is officially almost here. Three years ago, there was a fire in the restaurant Dili Junction, and since then, the mid-Washington Street fast-casual spot had been closed. Now, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is making its way from NYC to the Mile Square — and it has apparently set an opening date. It is set to open up next month on the week of October 25th after having passed its health inspection on September 21st, and we personally cannot wait to try it. Read on to learn more about Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, opening in Hoboken at 514 Washington Street.

All About Brooklyn Dumpling Shop

According to Jersey Digs, the shop, as its name suggests, will specialize in dumplings — with 32 flavors to choose from. The concept was founded by NYC restauranteur Stratis Morfogen, who took his family’s legacy trade, the New York diner, and reinvented it as this winning combination: diner dishes in delectable dumpling form.

The first location at 1st Avenue in Manhattan opened officially in spring of 2021 — but before it even opened, the business announced it was expanding to a second location in Hoboken next to Off The Wall, at 514 Washington Street, which will be run by a partner, Nickesh Desai. Now, after lots of eager anticipation, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop will be open to the public next month — and you can follow along on the restaurant’s Instagram page.

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.

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.

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.
