‘Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot’ Chain Opening Flagship NYC Location on the Bowery

What was once a one-stop Chinatown shop for cosmetics and computer repairs will soon become a chain restaurant. Not quite what you’re thinking, though. The six-year-old predecessor vacated 105 Bowery earlier this year to make way for some hot pot action.

Construction work has been steady inside the storefront the past couple months. It shows. The space was carved into kitchen and dining room, and former canopy deposed. Meanwhile, smallish teaser signage in the windows indicates that a place called Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot is on the way. And employees are sought for all positions.

As you would guess, the signature Mongolian dish is the main offering here. Hot pot selection is customizable, with choices of broth and meat/seafood.

Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot is an international chain with locations in eight states (Texas, California, New Jersey, et al), China, Japan, and Canada. 105 Bowery is their flagship Manhattan location. There is already a new outpost on 37th Avenue in Flushing, which opened last spring.
