If you’ve stayed on the Upper West Side and haven’t yet been to Jacob’s Pickles (509 Amsterdam at 85th Street), you’re missing out. After all, the busy, just-hip-enough restaurant for rustic takes on Southern comfort food is basically a neighborhood institution.
So when the Jacob’s Pickles team, recently opened a new spot nearby, we knew it had to be worth checking out.
Introducing Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co. (513 Amsterdam between 84th and 85th Streets), a fast-casual eatery with only 15 seats, inspired by its founder’s trip to Hong Kong and love for worldwide tastes. Stop in to sample six types of dumplings (from vegan to spicy curry pork) alongside noodles, veggies, and soft serve ice cream (we definitely recommended getting the pickle flavor!).
Open late, Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co. is the perfect new place to indulge both savory and sweet cravings after dark—or really any time the desire for adventure strikes.
