An award-winning restaurant in downtown Boston has been seized by state.
According to a source, Gourmet Dumpling House in the city's Chinatown neighborhood is closed, with a sign out front saying that it has been seized for nonpayment of taxes and is now in the possession of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It is not known what might happen to the Beach Street eatery now, though restaurants often work with the state to set up a payment plan when it comes to back taxes so they can reopen; as soon as we find out more about the exact status of Gourmet Dumpling House, we will post an update here.
Gourmet Dumpling House is often mentioned as one of the top dumpling spots in the Boston area, with Travel and Leisure once picking it as one of the 25 best Chinese restaurants in the United States. (CNNGo also included it among the 50 best Chinese restaurants in the country several years back.)
The address for Gourmet Dumpling House is 52 Beach Street, Boston, MA, 02111.
