Vanessa’s Dumpling House has soft-opened at 452 Amsterdam Ave (between 81st and 82nd). Vanessa’s may be known for its dumplings, but it’s also got a lot of other things on the menu, including soups and sesame pancake sandwiches. Not everything is available yet, but there’s already a celebratory atmosphere, according to Nina, who went in on Friday. “They reopened for the evening at 6, and were so busy the owner had to close it down for an hour by 6:30! The owner was fantastic and was giving out free sangria (to those of us over 21) and free juice to kids!”

Benjamin Moore Paints is expected to open in the former Urban Outfitters at 100th Street and Broadway, according to Sasha Charnin Morisson, who spoke to a worker at the site. Benjamin Moore’s corporate office did not respond to an inquiry.

Vitamin Shoppe at 92nd and Broadway is closing on March 13. “Shelves are already looking somewhat bare,” our tispter Marsha tells us. Leslie, an employee there, said “All they told us is the lease is up and they’re not willing to pay it.”

Permits indicate that a salon called House of Beauty is replacing European at 2197 Broadway at 78th Street. Thanks to Upper West Sider for the tip.
