In case confirmation was needed, this leasing signs dispels any possibility of Prosperity Dumpling reopening at 46 Eldridge Street. Instead, the establishment will launch anew on Broome Street, and sooner than we thought. This is welcome news for those who can still stomach their brand of dim-sum after the notorious back-alley kitchen and roach infestation were exposed last summer.

Until a few days ago, Prosperity Dumpling carried a status of “temporary closed” on the official Yelp page, with the promise to reopen on February 23 (if it’s to be trusted). With no mention of where, of course. But we know. As previously reported, the business is amidst relocation to 265 Broome Street in Little Italy. There has been no official confirmation, yet all signs on the ground point to this outcome. Most telling is the wall ornament that formerly adorned the OG location is now stashed near the front window. And the fact that permits are filed with the Department of Buildings for the work happening now.

Talk about complete commercial nosedives. Prosperity Dumpling had been kings of Chinatown, including in nearly every city guide for quality cheap eats. All it took to fell that reputation was a single photo snapped last summer, illustrating the disgusting back-alley preparation methods, complete with scurrying rats. This led to a Department of Health inspection, and closure on the grounds of roach infestation.

And if you don’t feel like waiting for the reboot, there is still the sister location at 69 Clinton Street, C & C Prosperity Dumpling.
