Oh, the dumpling war. Do you remember the bloodshed? Perhaps you recall the film adaptation. Anyway, all has been quiet on the East Village dumpling front since September, when Plump Dumpling opened and Dumpling Man realized the two could co-exist in the area. But the peace and quiet of the neighborhood have been shattered, as news of the imminent opening of newcomer Vanessa's Dumpling spreads like duck sauce squeezed onto an empty plate. Three dumpling houses of worship within six blocks of one another? Is the East Village big enough for the three of them? We're not ones to say. But at least Vanessa's pinwheel dumpling logo is different enough that she won't be receiving any animated death threats from the Dumpling Man.
