Bamboo Village dim sum restaurant delayed

May 11th, 2010 by master

In March we reported on the eagerly anticipated new Chinese restaurant opening in Wallingford at 4900 Stone Way. At the time, Bamboo Village, which will specialize in dim sum, was slated to open in late May or early June.

We talked this morning with owner Po Lee, who told us that the opening will be delayed until early July because the construction and permitting process has taken longer than expected. The exterior of the restaurant is almost done, and now the interior will take shape.

Lee also told us he’s hired a dim sum chef from The Mirage in Las Vegas.
