‘Secret Chopsticks’ in Rosslyn Is Being Secretive About Its Opening

The paper has been taken off the windows at Secret Chopsticks in Rosslyn, but when is it opening? Well, that’s a secret.

A restaurant representative declined to speak on the record to an ARLnow.com reporter this afternoon and declined to allow photography inside the soon-to-open contemporary Chinese eatery. Inquisitive members of the public, however, can walk up and see the interior for themselves by looking through the large plate glass windows.

Secret Chopsticks (1850 N. Fort Myer Drive) was originally slated to open last summer. We were told in August that construction and permitting delayed the opening by more than a year.

The restaurant will feature authentic modern Chinese cooking, Secret Chopsticks’ Robin Li said previously.

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

Update at 4:15 p.m. — Secret Chopsticks general manager Malia Milstead explains via email: “We are striving for perfection and want to do [a] preview for press in a couple of weeks.”
