In other Chinese dining news, Squid Ink has it that Peking Tavern, a Beijing-inspired gastropub, is coming to 8th and Spring in Downtown LA. Owner Andrew Chiu boasts that the food "will be totally authentic and comparable to, if not better than the best of SGV has to offer." He fellow co-owner and chef have impressive pedigrees: One hails from Hong Kong and specializes in dumpling making, the other is from Tianjin in Northern China. Expect pot-stickers, boiled dumplings, beef rolls and Chinese cocktails. Chiu hopes to open by the end of the year.
