Say Yum: Ping Pong Dim Sum Moves into Dupont
After joining the Chinatown community over a year ago, the team at Ping Pong Dim Sum has announced their second location - Dupont Circle. Opening later this summer, the restaurant will feature the same cuisine but a few changes in decor.
Focusing on the “fun of sharing,” the Dupont Circle restaurant will feature a dim sum bar created especially for groups of friends and an outdoor alfresco dining area that will seat up to 90 people. Open until midnight on Friday and Saturday evenings, diners can enjoy their signature cocktails as well as the Ping Pong After Dark bar menu before hitting the bustling nightlife of Dupont Circle.
“We selected Washington, DC as our flagship city for North America because of the many adventurous urbanites - young people who can appreciate the non-traditional twist we offer to Chinese culture,” said Ian Daly, President and Managing Director, Ping Pong USA. “We knew we wanted a second location in this great city, and Dupont is the perfect spot for us – the neighborhood is full of vibrant and diverse groups of residents, tourists, office workers and students.”
Of course, we'll bring you a full review when it opens! In the meantime, salivate over the pics.
