Coming Soon: C & C Prosperity Dumpling at 69 Clinton

Posted on: March 4th, 2011 at 6:39 am by

Cheap-eats favorite Prosperity Dumpling is reportedly expanding its neighborhood reach.  The hole-in-the-wall restaurant, currently residing at 46 Eldridge Street, is poised to open a new location above Delancey.

Two days ago, a new maroon awning was installed at 69 Clinton Street announcing the forthcoming arrival of C & C Prosperity Dumpling.  At first glance, it seemed liked a shoe-in for knockoff dumplings, so we placed a call to the highly-rated original to secure more information.  The employee informed us that this new outpost near the corner of Rivington Street is indeed the same company.  Opening date is roughly fifteen days away.

The arrival of a new tenant here gives some degree of closure to a mystery that was brewing for almost a year.  Last June, a reader sent in a note saying an awning in the McDonald’s color scheme arrived at 69 Clinton Street, formerly El Socio Jewelry.  “Is that a riff on WD-50,” he had written.  It touted some entity called “69 D C,” but nothing ever came of it.  The storefront remained empty and dormant until mid-January, when interior renovations began.

If on Eldridge, what’s your go-to, Prosperity or Vanessa’s?
