Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao, one of Flushing’s most recognizable soup dumpling spots, closed its doors last month.
While local residents and foodies wondered what happened, the mom-and-pop restaurant was plotting an upgrade and expansion to One Fulton Square.
Nan Xiang plans to reopen in the fall into a bigger and better space – able to accommodate 150 guests – just 100 feet from its original location. The restaurant will move into a 5,113-square-foot space with a 10-year lease. F&T Group will be its new landlord.
Known for its crab and pork soup dumplings, steamed buns and Shanghainese dim sum, Nan Xiang also serves crispy noodles, fried rice cakes, scallion pancaked and pan-fried dumplings.
Other restaurants at One Fulton Square include Pappa Rich, Guan Fu, IKI Modern Japanese Cuisine, The Coop and Leaf Bar and Lounge.
