Prosperity Dumpling Gives up on the LES, Ships out to Brooklyn Instead

The saga of Prosperity Dumpling continues this week with news of an imminent relocation to Brooklyn.

Restaurant rep Robin Chang tells us that the reincarnated outpost will open far afield at 2369 86th Street in Bensonhurst. Proverbial tail between legs.

It’s now nearly a year since that one headline last summer kickstarted a downward spiral for Prosperity Dumpling. News of its back alley kitchen and their roach infestation pretty much sunk the business. Department of Health Inspections resulted in mandatory closure, and the establishment never recovered. There were also follow-up plans to open on Broome Street, as relayed by Chang several months ago, but that ultimately fizzled. Then its Clinton Street Location, C&C Prosperity Dumpling likewise closed.

Its longtime home at 46 Eldridge Street, meanwhile, will eventually become home to East Dumpling. Don’t hold your breath, though, as the storefront has been dormant for months.
