CINCINNATI —  There is good news for fans of Tiger Dumpling and visitors to the Banks.

Weeks after closing its Clifton Heights location, the Chinese restaurant announced Wednesday that it will relocate next to Tervis in Phase I of the Banks this fall.

The eatery gained a strong following for its edamame, soups and dumplings after opening near the University of Cincinnati in 2015. The same menu, which included pork or vegetable dumplings served as either steamed or pan-fried potstickers with spicy and mild sauce, will be available at the new location.

Tiger Dumpling owner Hunter Hebert said he decided to close the original store and relocate Downtown to handle larger crowds and prepare for future growth.

“Tiger Dumpling has been really popular, and we’ve built a big following that includes everyone from college students to families,” said Hebert. “The Banks gives us an incredible environment to accelerate our growth and expose our great menu to so many more people. We’re excited to be a part of the positive momentum happening Downtown and add a new dimension to the food roster at The Banks.”

Tiger Dumpling is the eighth new retailer announced for the riverfront development since December.

Developers previously announced Howl at the Moon, Splitsville Luxury Lanes, The Stretch from 4EG and BurgerFi will open in Phase I of the Banks by year’s end. Tervis opened in Phase I in April.

Taste of Belgium and Pies & Pints are scheduled to open in Phase II of the Banks this summer.
