Wang Dynasty Opens Wednesday in Bethesda

Chinese restaurant replaces Shanghai Village

Via Arlis Dellapa

Chinese restaurant Wang Dynasty will open on Wednesday at the former Shanghai Village location in Bethesda.

The cuisine will be a mix of dishes from Shanghai and Taiwan, drawing from the owner’s two previous restaurants, Pacifica Café and Michael’s Noodles.

Wang Dynasty will “plan to be [the] preeminent and go-to Chinese restaurant in Bethesda,” owner David Wang said in a February news release.

Wang Dynasty had a private opening Monday with landlords and media representatives. The menu features entrees ranging from $12 to $27, including fish, pork and chicken dishes. Larger party-style items are priced higher and a whole Peking duck is $39.95.

Shanghai Village closed in February after 15 years at 4929 Bethesda Ave.
