When Ping Pong Dim Sum opened back in Dec. ’09 in Chinatown I promised myself I would no longer jump to conclusions about the name of a restaurant. Of course, Ping Pong Dim Sum does not actually offer ping pong though they do offer some mean dim sum.
But I am happy to say that the International House of Pong coming to 1010 Wisconsin Ave, NW will offer table tennis. It’s liquor application permit says:
“New American cuisine restaurant, with areas for table tennis. Number of Seats 150, and total occupancy load is 300”
However, it does raise the question – what exactly is “New American cuisine”?
I couldn’t find the exact storefront at 1010 Wisconsin Ave, NW where the restaurant will be located but I’ll be sure to update when they open.
In the meantime we discussed lots of places to play ping pong around DC, here.
