C&C Prosperity Dumpling Offshoot Likewise Closes Shop on Clinton Street
The kid brother of Prosperity Dumpling is likewise cooked, it appears. Several readers have noticed that C&C Prosperity Dumpling on Clinton Street – the outpost opened back in 2011 – is closed without explanation. Grate is locked and the business line is forever a busy signal. No signs or announcements, either.
Thus ends the prosperous era of Prosperity Dumpling on the Lower East Side.
C&C remained afloat even after the back alley kitchen of its Eldridge Street kin was exposed, leading to a city agency sting and closure last August. There had been a brief glimmer of hope earlier this year, though, when word surfaced that Prosperity was moving to Broome Street Little Italy. Clues of an interior build-out were also visible. Yet in the end, a reopening never happened, and that store became a refuge for a nearby tailor shop, as previously disclosed.
