Under Construction: Bao Bao Dumpling House

Urban Eye has posted an update on Bao Bao Dumpling House.

The delay of Bao Bao Dumpling House on Spring Street has perplexed more than fans of Portland’s revolving food scene. Owner Cecile Stadler, touring her new building, formerly West End Deli, on Wednesday, was miffed that the process has taken so long.

  1. Errrr, she was really expecting summer tourists there?

    Culinary tourists, yes; run of the mil tourists, no. Most of the summer visitors who come up for a weekend or day trip up from Massachusetts and similar locales, they (in my experience) pretty much stay in the Old Port.

    Also she’s building a restaurant from the basement up — she really didn’t expect it to go smoothly? And how much of the delays are due to the contractor? Blaming the City for red tape is sooooo easy.
