Tailor Shop Refugee Spells End to Prosperity Dumpling Reopening Rumors at 365 Broome Street
Contrary to its name, Prosperity Dumpling is on a streak of bad luck. First, the damning photo of a back-alley kitchen released to the press, then the resultant action by city agencies to shut it down. There had been a brief ray of hope, but it’s since been dashed.
Since December, all signs pointed toward a reopening crosstown at 365 Broome Street. A man named Robin Chang who “represented” the owners of Prosperity Dumpling promised the new location was certainly happening. We even spotted some interior decoration from the OG Eldridge space inside the Broome location. But it is not to be.
A stroll past the address this week reveals that a tailor shop has since taken up residence here. In fact, it’s the New York Tailor Shop which previously operated on Kenmare Street. Open since 1998, their it didn’t quite work out with the previous landlord.
We reached out to Chang for additional comment on the fate of the OG Prosperity Dumpling, but have yet to hear back.
