The Return of the Bing

  • p

I just _had_ to post that title! Today, Roll and Dough on 3rd St. just east of 6th Av. reopened for the first time since they closed for renovation. Their offerings are very limited for the time being (I was told that their full lineup of bing would be in place next week), but please come back and patronize this place. (Disclaimer: I have no connection with the establishment other than having been a longtime and satisfied customer of their old location in Flushing.)

  1. Great to know. Why the renovation? It was brand spanking new. Did she change the decor or something?

      It didn't seem that different. The woman who was running things today said the closing was actually to train staff about new products.

    2. I hope they've focused their menu a bit--the place always suffered from trying to do too much. And that's a shame, since the bings are so good.

      1. Yeah! I was so afraid the they'd never re-open (especially after the initial re-open date came and went). How limited is the bing selection?

          As of around 6:30 yesterday, they had Spicy Pork, Spicy Chicken, and Banana bing only, plus a few varieties of regular bao and dumplings. Jane, I don't know what the new items will be.

        2. So what are their new items?

          1. Thank goodness. A spicy pork bing followed by a mango drink from papaya dog and a Patisserie Claude pain au chocolat make for a mighty fine breakfast.
