Virgil’s Real BBQ, which has a popular Times Square location, has opened at 2452 Broadway (91st). Virgil’s is a takeout and delivery spot that serves barbeque and other comfort food. The meats are smoked in-house, and they serve various types of barbeque, including Memphis pork spare ribs and Texas beef brisket. Desserts like banana pudding are popular too. People can order online or by calling 646-887-3754.
Vanessa’s Dumpling House, a popular Chinese spot with four locations around the city, is getting closer to opening at 452 Amsterdam Ave (between 81st and 82nd). We first heard about Vanessa’s renting the space in 2019, and it has finally put up its sign. But the restaurant still has some hurdles to get through before opening, they tell us. It still needs city permits, so it doesn’t yet have an opening date. Once it does open, however, Upper West Siders can look forward to a wide variety of Asian food. Other locations offer noodles, soup, buns, sandwiches, bubble tea, and more. Check out the menus at the various locations here. Thanks to Xico for the tip.
