Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, a New York-based dumpling restaurant with automated service, is opening its first Connecticut location this month near the UConn campus.
The restaurant, at 106 Royce Circle in the Downtown Storrs development, opens Feb. 15. Brooklyn Dumpling Shop offers a fully automated experience. Guests can order ahead online, or on site at an electronic kiosk. When a guest’s order is ready, the customer will receive a text notification to pick it up from a marked, temperature-controlled locker, which opens automatically once the customer scans a provided barcode.
