We Knew It Was Coming – Shanghai Garden Closed

Sorry it took me so long to get around to posting this sad news. Shanghai Garden was located at 4469 Connecticut Ave, NW. We judged them back in Dec. ’09. I know there are big development plans for this space but it’s working its way through the ANC/permitting process. I’ll be sure to update when construction progresses.

  • Sad. I took Lang Lang to lunch here one time with his father when he was an “up and coming” pianist looking for a good Chinese meal. Seriously. He was performing at the Kennedy Center that weekend and was very gratified.

  • rumor has it that the development plans fell through and the owners wanted to lease it back to the restaurant owners but they had already given away all their stuff. really miss that lunch special.

  • sad news. i used to go to this place all the time when i lived in the neighborhood. there are VERY few restaurant options in van ness, and this place happened to be not only convenient but also excellent food. great lunch special, as others mentioned, as well as some great fishbowl-style drinks to share…

  • aw man, what a bummer. that was one of my favorite places to go to in high school, and the owners were such friendly people. sad.
