Dumpling Daughter in Weston Is Expanding to Cambridge's Kendall Square

by Marc Hurwitz

A suburban Chinese restaurant that has a connection to a landmark spot which had once been on the Boston waterfront is expanding to Cambridge.

According to a job post within the site, Dumpling Daughter in Weston is planning to open a new location in Kendall Square this spring and they are now looking for a general manager for the upcoming spot. An exact address has not been given as of yet, so keep checking back for updates as they come in.

The original Dumpling Daughter first opened on Center Street in Weston in late 2014, offering such items as dumplings, ramen, rice bowls, sandwiches, wings, and more; Nadia Liu Spellman, who runs the place, is the daughter of Sally Ling, who is known for her namesake restaurant that first opened on the waterfront in the mid-1980s and who was also Spellman's "number one consultant" in the opening of Dumpling Daughter. (Sally Ling's, which was a groundbreaking high-end Chinese dining spot, moved to Cambridge a few years after opening and finally moved again to New Jersey before closing for good.)
