T-Spot Takes Over 99 Allen Street

The second coming of Fried Dumplings at 99 Allen Street is no longer. Three years of operating under the corporate guise of Inexpensive Delicacies Co. came to an end last week with the arrival of a new Asian fusion eatery called T-Spot.
T-Spot completely remodeled the interior of 99 Allen. Now the storefront has less of a dingy factor, but still maintains a pseudo fast-food vibe. A sidewalk sandwich board reveals the offerings – small bites, bubble tea, dumplings, rice & noodles, skewers, slushies, and smoothies. Did we miss anything?
For a decade, 99 Allen harbored Fried Dumpling, a beloved hole-in-the-wall dim sum dispensary that rivaled Prosperity and Vanessa’s just around the corner. Landlords Heaven Way Buddha Church booted the Lower East Side favorite in April 2009, and IDC set up shop a year-and-change later. Their misleading signage had many believing it was the same company, though.
