Prosperity Dumpling learns alleys are not prep kitchens

This is apparently not the only place Prosperity Dumpling was making its food.

Everything in New York city is cramped, including restaurants. And we’re not just talking about rubbing elbows with our neighbors in the dining room. The kitchen often seems impossibly small — and in the case of Prosperity Dumpling, it turns out it was.

The popular Chinatown restaurant cranks out not just some of the best dumplings in the city, but at four for $1 it was practically performing a public service. That’s all on hold after the Department of Health came around following this photo sent anonymously to Gothamist:

NYC doesn’t have a lot of alleys, but when it does, they’re avoided by everyone who isn’t running from a fictional villainbecause they’re full of trash and rats.

The restaurant got an A rating from the health authority during its last inspection in April, but as of last night istemporarily closed, according to a sign on the door.
