Dim Sum House Celebrates Grand Opening with Free Soup Dumplings

Dim Sum House, by Jane G’s, will officially open this Wednesday, January 11, 2017 in University City.


This expansive and stylish new new 6,000 square foot restaurant, bar and lounge will be one of the largest openings of the new year – with seating capacity at over 225 people in five different dining and party spaces. The menu will focus on all-day, every-day (even late night) dim sum in two styles: Shanghai and Cantonese. Three chefs have been brought in – including two directly from China – to showcase their expertise in both styles, as well as in noodles, fried rice, chef specialties and familiar favorites. At the bar, look for 15 draft and bottle beers, specialty signature cocktails, and a full line of spirits and wine.

For grand opening, they will give away FREE soup dumplings on Wednesday from 12-2pm. Then at 7pm, they will kick-off a grand opening party with the Lion dance, firecrackers, DJ, live music, food sampling and drink specials.
