Signage has appeared for a modern Asian pop-up restaurant at 25-34 Jackson Avenue
As readers of The Court Square Blog know, it will be called ‘Daily Spoon’ run by Tristan Chin-Fatt and partner Deon Whiskey.1
They are also the owners and founders of Destination Dumplings, a modern take on dumplings, which has been featured in popups at Governor’s Ball, Smorgasburg (Williamsburg, World Trade Center and Prospect Park), and CitiField, among other locations.
Both have cooked in Japanese, New American, Mexican, Italian and French styles.
“The influence of flavors is drawn from many cultures and countries, our style is a representation of not only our own mixed heritage but the city which we grew up in and both still live today,” Chin-Fatt said.
Daily Spoon is aiming to open in the next month. It takes over for Subway, which closed in 2019.2
Here’s more about Destination Dumplings from its website:
The founders of Destination Dumplings are self-described as “Two Kids From Queens”. Both born in 1984 in the dumpling capital of the borough… Flushing. They have been long-time friends and both married wives who were also best friends. Currently Chef Tristan Chin-Fatt and Deon Whiskey have used their unique and different talents to help grow Destination Dumplings into an exciting pop-up in every corner of their beloved city.
