New Rosslyn Chinese Restaurant Looking to Open in September

secret-chopsticksSecret Chopsticks, a contemporary Chinese restaurant in Rosslyn, may open its doors by the end of September.

The new restaurant, which sits along N. Fort Myer Drive on the lower ground floor of the Turnberry Towers building, is currently under construction, according to general manager Robin Li.

Construction and permit issues caused the restaurant to delay its opening, he said. It was originally planned to open last summer.

Once opened, the restaurant will have 120 seats inside along with outdoor seating. Li said the restaurant is still waiting to get the permit for outdoor seating.

The restaurant will be different than a typical Chinese restaurant that serves “Americanized” Chinese food, Li said. Instead, the restaurant will feature contemporary Chinese cooking.

“Whatever they are cooking in China now, we are going to cook,” he said.

The restaurant will also focus on high quality service, making the restaurant more of a sit down restaurant than a takeout place. It will also have its own wine list, Li said.

“There are a lot of differences between this restaurant and other Chinese restaurants,” he said.
