New Concept MP Closed

Tried going to New Concept for dim sum this morning with the family. The sign was gone, all the tables and chairs were stacked outside, and the handwritten sign on the door read, "CLOSED FOR REMODELING". There was also an application for a liquor license on the window. Anyone have any info? Did they sell? Are they coming back? or will it be an entirely new restaurant? Thanks in advance.

  1. This was probably bound to happen sooner or later. Head chef left, significant turnover in the kitchen and front staff. Too bad. It was a good effort.

    1. When there is a change of ownership, the new owners must apply for a new liquor license. Sorry to hear about the change.

      1. re: raytamsgv ...doesn't identify new name of restaurant, but apparently there was a change in ownership.

          i passed by new concept tonight and spotted a guy right in the middle of changing the restaurant sign. he wasn't finished putting up all the all i saw was "elite" and "restaurant." heh. sorry for the incomplete report!

      2. sorry, fellow foodies, i don't think new concept's bread and butter demographic (chinese people in the SGV) really ever took to the place, so i'm not surprised if they're gone. my relatives unanimously said that the place was overpriced, nothing like real chinese food (lol) and they couldn't see what the fuss was about.
