Din Tai Fung: Opening date?
Anyone know when Din Tai Fung is opening in Bellevue's Lincoln Center. All my sources only say "Fall, 2010".
Relatively surprised that a search didn't already pick up this question given the number of xaio long bao fanatics out there...
I went by yesterday, they are not close to being finished, that said the opening is supposed to be late October/early November. It is hard to find if that is the room they are going to use, tucked away down a hall.
If it's open by Thanksgiving, be pleasantly surprised. Restaurants never open on time, and if someone's turning a non-restaurant space into one, you can safely add 3-6 months to the initial estimated opening date.
I had the wonderful opportunity to eat at Din Tai Fung in Beijing and am really excited for them to finally open in the Seattle area.
