The staff confirmed grand opening was Sunday, Feb 20th. Previously at this locationw as a Latino owned bar called “The Game”, and construction/remodeling has been slow since “The Game” closed early 2010. Quick conversation with the waitress confirms the chef isn’t from Beijing, but further questions were not posed.
The whole duck, with is suppose to serve “10″ people”, carved table side, is $32, whereas 2 courses (an additional soup is served) is $39. Admitted, this doesn’t seem like a Beijing restaurant as the seafood menu takes up more than 1/4 and there’s a distinct lack of focus on offals & poultry, so only time (and bites) will tell. At $32, the pricing is similar to other duck houses, and even Beijing prices. Perhaps the opening of Beijing Duck House will quell the need for duck since Quanjude of Rosemead closed early last
Here’s to eating more duck, and less chicken, in 2011:
Update 1: Upon further scrutiny, one sees a sign for Lu cuisine, ie, Shandong cuisine at Beijing Duck House. Also after further inspection, BDH is carrying an interesting line of house made dumplings stuffed with sea intestines (sea worms), a Qingdao (under the auspices of Shandong cuisine) special, or scallops, and other seafoods (squid, etc.).
