A dumplings and noodles eatery is expected to open on 46th Street by the end of January.
The owner of Dumplings & Things, which will be located at 45-26 46th Street, said that she has nearly completed construction and aims to open late January.
The eatery, she said, will have about 30 seats. There will not be table service, with the owner describing the restaurant as “fast casual.”
The menu will consist of soup, baos (steamed buns filled with pork/beef/vegetables), and a wide selection of noodles and dumplings (both steamed and fried). The food will include a mix of Chinese and other Asian flavors.
The owner has another restaurant—offering the same style of food—in Park Slope.
The restaurant is moving into a portion of the space that was once occupied by Grand 99 Cent Store, which left about 2 years ago. The other portion was leased to Signature Paint & Home Center, which opened this summer.
In other news, a nail salon has recently opened at 41-22 Greenpoint Avenue replacing a check-cashing store. The salon is located next door to Blue Z Liquor, which opened about nine months ago.
Meanwhile, Blaze Fitness, a private training studio, opened recently at 45-12 43rd Avenue, which was previously occupied by an accounting office.
Collin Davis, the owner of Blaze Fitness, said that he offers one-on-one sessions with clients and provides everything from a food plan to an exercise regimen.
