Vanessa’s Dumpling House to Open on UES

Among new UES liquor license applicants (per Community Board 8 notes) is Vanessa’s Dumpling House, which is applying for its wine, beer, and cider license at 1623 Second Avenue (between 84th and 85th Streets).

Vanessa’s Dumpling House “specializes in Chinese snacks such as hand-made dumplings, buns, sesame pancakes, and noodles.” According to its website, the family-run business was launched in 1999 with its first location in Chinatown.
