Chi Dynasty quietly left its Studio City location a few months ago, but now in its place is Shanghai Rose, which soft-opened last week. Dim sum is the twist here—and it is offered seven days a week, with cart service on Saturday only. There are more than 40 choices of dim sum, including buns, dumplings, balls and rolls filled with chicken, shrimp, pork and vegetables. Prices run $4 to $8 a dish. There is also a full menu of traditional dishes from Hong Kong and Shanghai. Owner Shanghai Rose Murphy is a seasoned restaurateur who has had her hand in opening various Chinese restaurants in Los Angeles and Monterey Park, including Green Village in Sherman Oaks. Free egg rolls and non-alcoholic beverages will be offered to new customers through the end of December. The drinks list includes beer imported from China. 12229 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, 818-762-2542

Dupar’s quickly replaced John Groats in Encino a few weeks ago, complete with blue plate specials (above) and fresh-baked pies, muffins and sweet breads, of course. This location is open 24/7, so if you’ve got a 3 a.m. craving, you know where to go. 16120 Ventura Blvd., Encino

West Valley residents now get to indulge in one of the best French toast dishes in town: Blu Jam Café recently opened its third location at 23311 Mulholland Highway (at the Valley Circle exit), replacing Label’s Deli. Open for breakfast and lunch only.
