Comings and Goings: Restaurants on the Move

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, […]

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.

And more:

Green Cottage in Woodland Hills closed and Noodle Pavilion will take its place.

Johnny Rockets in Encino has closed its doors after seven years at Balboa and Ventura.

Manny’s, the small Mexican eatery on the corner of Moorpark and Woodman, suddenly shut its doors.

Christmas Crib Sheet

It happens every year—while you’re still digesting all that Thanksgiving stuffing, Christmas starts to rear its jolly, festive head.  Poinsettias become omnipresent (as does Mariah Carey’s rendition of “All I Want For Christmas Is You”), and a trip to the mall seems like a death wish.  Frankly, we know nothing about which store is having […]
