MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dong Lai Shun, a Beijing institution and home to the original hot pot restaurant in China, has expanded to North America, selecting Mountain View, CA as its first restaurant location in the U.S.
Members of the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce, joined by Mayor Patricia Showalter, will formally welcome General Manager Harry Huang and Executive Chef Wang GuoXin at the ribbon cutting ceremony on the restaurant's grand opening, Tuesday, January 10, 2017.
"We are honored to have the mayor officiate the ribbon-cutting on her last day in office," Huang said. "I feel blessed by the heart-warming welcome from our friends in Mountain View and our neighbor city Palo Alto."
Dong Lai Shun serves authentic Beijing cuisine in an elegant setting that reflects Beijing's rich culture and history. Its traditional furniture, carved panels and glass work were designed to transport the diner to the Imperial Court where the Emperor once enjoyed the most lavish cuisines from all over the nation. The restaurant specializes in hot pot cuisine and Beijing speciality dishes and desserts, including flavorful lamb kebabs and paper-thin beef cuts for hot pot.
The restaurant was conceptualized with group dining in mind: It features special seating that can be reserved to accommodate large corporate lunches and group events. Its individual hot pot menu caters to parties of any size.
The Dong Lai Shun Group is a distinguished restaurant and foodservice organization headquartered in China whose history can be traced back to 1903. It operates 23 company-owned restaurants in China.
The Grand Opening reception is an invitation-only event beginning with a press conference at 11:30am, followed by VIP presentations and a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 12:45pm. Dong Lai Shun is located in The Village at San Antonio Center at 545 San Antonio Rd in Mountain View, California.
Members of the press and other interested parties are invited to join. Please contact us if you are interested in participating. Complimentary menu tasting and wine will be served buffet style, noon - 2pm.
