Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, a dumpling automat concept, will open at St. Mark’s Place (131 First Avenue) in the East Village on May 19. This fully automated restaurant conceptualized by Brooklyn Chop House Director of Operations Stratis Morfogen will bring the Automat of yesteryear into 2021 with advanced Autoflow technology made for today and Zero Human Interaction (ZHI) throughout the entire grab-and-go process. Brooklyn Dumpling Shop’s state-of-the-art food locker technology from ONDO, powered by Panasonic, will provide guests with an easy, safe option to pick up orders from temperature-controlled lockers at peak freshness.
“The Automat was single handedly the greatest fast food distribution equipment ever designed. The technology we’ve brought to Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is unlike anything seen before, which will allow us to create an Autoflow from a customers’ cell phone, to our POS ordering kiosks, right to our lockers to bring quick serve restaurants into the 21st century,” said Brooklyn Dumpling Shop Founder Stratis Morfogen. “The pandemic delayed Brooklyn Dumpling Shop’s opening by a year, but this was a concept I came up with in 2018. I’m so excited to see this dream become a reality, which has been three years in the making and will now be franchised all over the globe.
