Jonathan writes: “The old Ping Pong Dim Sum on New Hampshire & O has been vacant forever. Looks like finally a change.”

Alas, that placard for a proposed Wahlburgers was posted back in 2016 and the deal fell through in May of 2018.

Up the block coming soon signage did get posted (thanks to Alex for sending) for The Admiral, coming to the old James Hoban’s space. Stay tuned for updates there.

Mandu suffered a devastating fire back in July 2017 and in the words of co-owner Chef Danny Lee:

“No words can describe how good it feels to have guests back in our house on 18th St.”

Mandu was a neighborhood gem and one of the truly great spots in town where you knew you were going to have a awesome meal in a chill atmosphere every single time. Fortunately, Anju is fixing to pick right up where Mandu left off. If not even more so. I took an early taste last night and haven’t stopped smiling since. Read More
