The Omakase Restaurant Group is getting set to debut the third SF location of Dumpling Time at the Chase Center on Monday, February 3 — and it's the first restaurant to open in the still-developing, Kaiser-branded Thrive City on the arena grounds.
As Eater reports, the new Dumpling Time will have four menu items that will be unique to this location: scallop siu mai with XO sauce; pork ribs spiced with cinnamon and star anise; wagyu fried rice; and Dungeness crab garlic noodles. And this is also going to be the first Dumpling Time to have a full bar — the original and the Express locations Division Street only serve beer, sake, and wine. That's good news for concert-goers and Warriors fans who want to have some reasonably priced adult beverages before paying arena prices next door.

The Chase Center location will be the Omakase group's fifth Dumpling Time, counting its two locations in Japan. And it is nearly double the size of the original Division Street space, with 160 seats and almost 5,000 square feet. It's also going to be very, very visually busy — the space sits next to the telecasting booth and its video screen, and it will have 10 TVs of its own inside.
Also, the new Dumpling Time in Thrive City will be for lunch/dim sum brunch Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., as well as for dinner daily from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Thrive City has a total of 29 retail and restaurant spaces, only a small handful of which are open yet. In addition to Dumpling Time, Chase Center ticketholders and Mission Bay workers alike can look forward to new locations of Gott's Roadside, Oakland's Sweet Belly, Burlingame's Nachoria, and something called High Energy Food Hall from Michael Mina. Additionally, Mission Bay Wine Bar at Thrive City will be an extension of the nearby Mission Bay Wine & Cheese which just opened in August.
Also coming to Chase Center grounds, as we learned back in September, is a new steakhouse concept from celebrity chef Tyler Florence called Miller & Lux. Florence hasn't said much about the restaurant except to display a well-marbled, "antique" 38-day-aged ribeye "from an 8-year-old retired dairy cow" on his Twitter. Also, curiously, Miller & Lux is not listed among the restaurants that are "coming soon" on the Thrive City website. So who knows!?
