Ping Pong Dim Sum Opening 2nd Location in Dupont!

View Larger Map

Wow, this is pretty big news for Dim Sum fans. Thanks to a reader for sending in the scoop from an employee of the One Dupont Circle building where Ping Pong Dim Sum will go into the old Georgetown Valet and Fed Ex spaces:

I am happy to announce that the American Council on Education entered into a long term agreement with Ping Pong Dim Sum Restaurant to lease the space vacated by Georgetown Valet and FedEx Office. Because of some unanticipated obstructions, for example the requirement to obtain a zoning variance to extend the window line as requested by Ping Pong, the process took longer than we anticipated. However, in the end we feel that we were able to negotiate very favorable lease terms for ACE with an upscale and established restaurant that will add value to the NCHE building and the Dupont Circle business community.

The construction necessary to extend the window line is tentatively scheduled to begin November 28, 2010 and should be complete and ready to turn over to Ping Pong in January 2011. Once turned over to Ping Pong they can start the construction necessary to build out the interior space according to their design drawings. The tentative grand opening for the restaurant is scheduled for 2Q 2011 with much anticipation.

Ping Pong Dim Sum’s first DC location opened at 900 7th Street, NW in Chinatown back in Dec. ’09.
