Popular Taiwanese chain Din Tai Fung has stolen the hearts of American states like California, Washington, Oregon, and Nevada, and soon, NYC!
A recent press release shared that Din Tai Fung just signed a 15-year lease for inside Paramount’s 48-story office in Midtown. The retail space will take over 26,400 square feet in the public plaza of the towering building.
Din Tai Fung, known best for their Michelin Star rated Xiao Long Bao soup dumplings and noodles, is expected to open their first NYC location by 2023.
The chain first received their Michelin Star at its Hong Kong branch in 2010, making history “as no other Taiwanese restaurant [had] ever won a Michelin Star before,” shared Din Tai Fung’s website. Beyond Xiao Long Bao, the restaurant serves mouthwatering dumplings, wontons, & buns.
According to the press release, the mom-and-pop spot was founded nearly 70 years ago in Taiwan and has since become an international sensation. The 1633 Broadway location will not only be NYC’s first-ever Din Tai Fung, but New York State’s as well.
The restaurant space is being designed by David Rockwell and his notorious architecture and design firm Rockwell Group.
“We are thrilled that internationally recognized Din Tai Fung has selected 1633 Broadway as its first New York restaurant,” said Peter Brindley, Executive Vice President, Head of Real Estate. “This transaction further exemplifies our focus on partnering with world class retail tenants and providing a spectacular amenity for tenants at 1633 Broadway and the neighborhood.”
The wildly popular chain is expected to be a hit in NYC, and we can’t wait to sink our teeth into their steamed dumplings and noodles!
