Charlie Gilhuly, who opened Grammie’s Donuts & Biscuits in the Submit Highway house in mid-February, has adopted up with Tiny Dumpling Property. He released the Asian-inspired takeout menu, with dishes like dumplings, rangoons, fried rice, noodles and sushi bowls, in mid-July.

“This menu is genuinely, really stable, chef-pushed food items to go, and it really hits the Asian takeout itch,” he explained. 

Gilhuly had been looking at other menus and principles for the space and decided to shift ahead with the Asian-model fare. He is doing work with his wife, Molly Healey, an skilled chef who joined the kitchen immediately after leaving her job with Westport’s Manna Toast.

As ghost kitchen area concepts, neither Grammie’s or Minimal Dumpling Household offer you dine-in provider. While Grammie’s offers shipping by Grubhub, the Dumpling menu is pickup only at the instant, Gilhuly explained. Pickups are accessible Thursday via Sunday from 4 to 9 p.m., with ideal time slots on a to start with-appear, initially-serve basis.

The menu offers shumai, potstickers and Szechuan dumplings with hen or pork filling to commence, sunomono, or vinegar-pickled cucumber duck wonton soup and rangoons that go further than just crab, with caramelized onion or mushroom filling. Other veggie-centric alternatives include carrot ginger and cabbage salads, mushroom fried rice, chilly soba noodles with shaved veggies and seasonal fruit, and charred broccoli.

Greater plates incorporate rooster katsu, with crispy-fried rooster breast, sushi rice and sesame slaw, miso-glazed Atlantic cod and a develop-your-individual duck buns alternative with steamed bao, crispy duck breast, housemade plum sauce and sunomono. Sushi bowls are topped with lobster salad, marinated bluefin tuna, hamachi or shiitake mushrooms. A kids’ box involves chicken katsu, hen potstickers, fried rice, Chinese five-spice doughnut holes and blueberries.


The menu also attributes kits ($55 to $65) for bigger foods, comprising various things. A family members food kit gives two kids’ packing containers and food stuff for dad and mom: cabbage salad, bluefin sushi bowl, rangoons, potstickers and doughnut holes. A date-night package offers a shareable 3-study course menu with sushi bowls, shumai, duck buns and a matcha cronut. A “wholesome meal” kit spotlights vegetable dishes and the miso-glazed cod.
