Popular Southern-style restaurant Jacob’s Pickles will reopen at 509 Amsterdam Avenue between 84th and 85th Street for dinner this Thursday, following a February fire that caused extensive damage. The interior has been revamped and the restaurant is adding some new menu items. It will eventually add a basement bar too.

And that’s not all. Jacob’s plans to add a new dumpling restaurant up the block at 513 Amsterdam Avenue sometime later this year. “The new place will feature a short menu of dumplings, like the shrimp pillow dumplings on the menu at Maison Pickle, and soft-serve for dessert,” Eater reported. It appears to be in a former computer store next to Alibaba, based on this listing.

      Sounds like the new dumpling place wants to compete with Momofuku Milk Bar? In terms of asian fusion and soft serve ala cereal milk.

      I’ll take dumplings however they want to give them to me! Yum!

      Has Jacob’s Pickles dispersed the money it collected for the people who were burned out of their homes? I would like them to talk about their process and how the funds were distributed.
