The dumpling-centric Pu Pu Hot Pot replacement is opening this weekend, according to DailyCandy, although the restaurant's voicemail only says that the opening is "soon" and notes that the date will be posted on Facebook. The latest news on Facebook, though, is from Monday: "We are waiting for our gas, plumbing and fire inspections." So whether it comes to pass this weekend or not, Patty Chen's Dumpling Room's opening is imminent.
On the menu: Dumplings. All dumplings, all the time. Even dessert dumplings, like Nutella and banana. Co-owner Patty Chen will also be available for dumpling-making lessons and catering, and the restaurant website indicates that a concept called "Patty Chen's Test Kitchen" is coming soon as well. No word on whether that is part of the Dumpling Room or a separate entity. And Chen and co-owner Marc Shulman are also behind Central Square club All Asia, which they are moving and turning into Prospect Lounge. Stay tuned for more breaking dumpling news.
