Will I ever enjoy Hollywood East dim sum again?

    We looked at the space a little while back. They had their liquor license hearing date posted as early August. Really could not tell anything else. The last update on the website is dated August 9 and states a mid September projected opening. But MoCo is notorious for delays in the final permits. I wish them the best of luck!

      Bumping for update.

      Yesterday, I ate dim sum at New Fortune, and it was good, but not stellar. I really miss HE!

      I'm wondering the same thing. No new news on their website--still says 'mid-September' opening. Just sent them an email asking for an update. Will post any response I get! I really miss that place. Why didn't they stay open at the old location until they had the new one up and running?

        OK, folks: Just got word from Hollywood East: they expect to be open within 5 weeks--that means early November. Yikes!

            Tim Carman of the Washington City Paper is reporting a tentative soft opening date of December 14.

        Does that mean that HE in Wheaton Plaza will not be until at least mid- December?
        I have been out of the area for a year and HE was my favorite Chinese in the area. Are there any reccomendations out there for Chinese food almost as good as New York?
        Thanks

          I didn't enjoy dim sum last night, but I did enjoy (加辣)豉汁干炒叉烧空心菜炒河粉 (ask for it by name!) as well as conversations with many of the family members at the opening, and a power failure, and dinner with Jon Singer and a random stranger as a result.. It's a lovely space and the kitchen was producing its customary good work. I'm really glad my departure from DC was delayed by a day.
