DUMPLING MASTER: Three Fold owner Lisa Zhang (file photo). Brian Chilson

Dumpling and noodle maven Lisa Zhang said last week that her Three Fold Noodles and Dumpling Co. will open in bigger digs at 615 Main St. on Monday, Sept. 25. Three Fold will grow 1.5-fold, from 80 seats at its 215 Center St. location to 120 seats on Main and will offer something new: breakfast, featuring bao, steamed and filled buns. Residents of the AR Democrat Lofts, with which the restaurant shares the building, along with Three Fold’s many fans, should be thrilled.

Zhang said the move means she’s doubling her staff and still taking applications. Three Fold’s simple menu — which includes steamed dumpling and noodle bowls (choose chicken, pork or vegetables), steamed buns, taro chips and sesame balls — will stay the same; the beer will now be on draft. The restaurant is also is making a minor change in service: You’ll still order, by number, at a cash register, but the food will be brought to the table, which Zhang said should be quicker. Hours will be 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (breakfast) and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
