Two new restaurants will be opening locations at the Samanea New York mall in Westbury.
Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao, known as Bao for short, and Ichiddo Ramen have signed 10-year leases at the revamped retail complex on Old Country Road.
Bao, which has operated a popular eatery in Flushing since 2006, will occupy a 5,092-square-foot space within the Westbury mall’s growing Restaurant Row. This will be Bao’s first Long Island location.
The northern Chinese cuisine offered by Bao focuses on hand-wrapped crab and pork soup dumplings. Named for the county in Shanghai where dumplings were invented, Bao also features steamed buns, Shanghainese dim sum, pan-fried crispy noodles, fried rice cakes, scallion pancakes with sliced beef, and fish fillet and pickled cabbage noodle soup.
Ichiddo Ramen, which is based in Minneapolis and has locations in eight cities across the country, will occupy 3,095 square feet in the mall’s new common area located by its new Old Country Road entrance. The restaurant offers 12 soup ramen varieties with 15 customized toppings, as well as specialty buns, stir-fry ramen, and donburi rice bowl dishes.
“Bao and Ichiddo Ramen are both sought after dining destinations, each with a large following and stellar reputations,” Dominic Coluccio, director of real estate for Samanea New York, said in a company statement. “We are privileged that they have chosen our property for their first Long Island locations. Dining plays a significant role in Long Island’s entertainment scene and Samanea’s Restaurant Row will be an exciting new dining destination with our expanded lineup of international cuisines.”
Both of the new restaurants are expected to open next year.
Nan Xiang Xiao Long Bao was represented by E Realty International, while landlord Samanea New York was represented by Matthew Kucker, Jordan Baruch and Herb Agin of Colliers International and in-house by Coluccio.
