One month ago we said good-bye to Zhong Shan Hakka Restaurant and learned that its replacement would be a dim sum eatery.

The sign is now up that the new restaurant, Dim Sum Club, is coming soon. Is it the same outfit as the restaurant in the Davinci Hotel on Van Ness Avenue that closed in 2019? No idea, but one can always hope, as that was a more than decent spot.

Last year when I was at Guangdong Barbecue Tea House on Irving, which had common ownership with the late Dim Sum Club, I had the chance to ask the boss lady what had happened. She explained that with the disruption from ongoing street construction and some changes at the hotel, the decision was made to shutdown. But it had been a good business for them and they intended to reopen some time.

Grubhub and Doordash already have menus for the new restaurant in their systems. Again, no idea if these are valid or not, given those companies' shady history. Here are the links for browsing, but please do not order through them.

Update: April 14, 12:45pm
Finally someone answered the phone today! The restaurant will open either tomorrow or Friday 4/16. The person I spoke to was not familiar with the Van Ness restaurant when I asked if they had the same owner. Since my Chinese is not up to snuff, this still needs more investigation before ruling out a connection.
