The pedigreed dumplings at Pinch Chinese, the SoHo soup dumpling restaurant that opened in SoHo in February, are the focus of a new dumpling happy hour. On Mondays through Fridays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., stop by the Prince Street restaurant for a cocktail and any three dumplings for $15. The xiao long bao have been the big draw, but the fish dumplings are the sleeper hit.

Gotham Market at The Ashland in Fort Greene now serves a Monday Funday happy hour every Monday through Labor Day. The special, which runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., includes drinks on deals at both Bar Granger and Mason Jar inside the food hall. At the former, that means $4 draft beers and $5 select wines, among other offerings; at the latter, $3 well drinks, $4 wines and $6 "Strawberry Summer Dream" cocktails. Deals on food include $10 Dinner Apizza and $6 Crispy Sandwiches at Bar Granger, 50% off apps at Mason Jar, and $1 off drinks and floats at Malai Ice Cream.

For dessert, more collaboration in the chocolate babka, red bean paste, and salted egg yolk.
