Dumpling Spot to Open on 69th and Amsterdam

DiDi Dumpling appears to be planning a new location at 201 Amsterdam Avenue at the corner of 69th Street (thanks to ‘Upper West Sider’ for the tip).

The previous tenant at 201 Amsterdam Ave was dance apparel store Capezio, which closed in late 2019.

Online listings for the storefront indicate it’s being offered in four subdivided sections, so it appears DiDi will only be taking a portion of the space.


The restaurant’s menu includes potstickers, boiled dumplings and soups. Dumplings and potstickers come in 5, 10 and 15 piece servings – and can be purchased frozen (along with wontons) in 25 and 50 piece servings.

The 5, 10 and 15 piece options are respectively priced at $4.75, $8.25 and $11.50 (except for their slightly more expensive shrimp dumplings which are $5.75, $10.75 and $14.45).

From Didi’s website: “Proudly serving New York City since 2011, DiDi Dumpling offers delectable dumplings and plentiful potstickers to spice up your life! Our fast, friendly service will give you that extra pep in your step and our creative, flavorful daily specials will leave you craving more. Stop by and enjoy this delicious traditional Chinese treat today!”


DiDi Dumpling has another location at 38 Lexington Avenue at East 24th Street.

Reviews include 4.6 out of 5 stars on Google; 4.7 out of 5 on Seamless; and 4 out of 5 on Yelp.

We’ve reached out to the restaurant for confirmation and a target opening date.
