|Four momos, a type of dumpling from Nepal, Tibet and India|
From their alcohol license filing, it's a "New restaurant with fusion cuisine and background music. Seating capacity is 90. Total capacity is 195. Sidewalk Café with seating for 30 patrons. Two Summer Gardens with a total of 65 seats for patrons." (Summer garden meaning back patio area.) The owners are Sam Huang and Wanchuk Topden.
A momo is a dumpling found in Tibet, Nepal, and neighboring areas of India like Sikkim, which is between Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Mr. Topden, if this is the same person, seems to be of Sikkimese ancestry, so I would guess that the place will be a fusion of American and Sikkimese food -- a pretty interesting combination. I hope to learn more soon.
Doing a little more Googling, I learned that they're commissioning a line of ceramics for the place, which is pretty interesting. There's a Kickstarter page with a funky and kind of not-safe-for-work video (so don't watch it at the office) and a PDF talking about the ceramics.
It's interesting though, I wonder if the 14th and Spring area is going to become like 11th Street, the "hip strip," as the New York Times called it? I suppose we'll have to see what happens when the new places open, it seems like there may be a critical mass.
