Lucky Liu’s, an authentic Chinese restaurant, opens a half a block from the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum just in time for the Chinese New Year
Lucky Liu’s soft opening on January 20, 2014 proved that San Diego was seeking its first authentic Chinese restaurant paired with a relaxed, upscale setting.
Lucky Liu’s menu and authenticity can be credited to Alex Thao, owner of RAMA, recognized as the best Thai restaurant in San Diego, and a group of veteran restaurant investors. With the new partnership venture, diners will be able to experience a laid back environment designed and built by Jaime Partners. Lucky Liu’s will be offering classic comforting Chinese dishes, such as hand-made pork and shrimp dumplings, egg drop soup, lo mein, and special entrees from Thao’s grandma’s “secret menu.” On the weekends, Lucky Liu’s will be serving the Gaslamp Quarter’s first-ever morning dim sum during their traditional Chinese brunch.
To honor the year of the horse, Lucky Liu’s will be celebrating the 32nd Annual San Diego Chinese New Year Food and Cultural Fair on Third Ave and J Street in downtown San Diego. The event takes place on Saturday, February 8 and Sunday February 9, 2014, with live performances and cultural displays. Lucky Liu’s will be providing free samples and chances to win prizes from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year with the San Diego community.
Located at 332 J St, Lucky Liu’s is nestled less than a block away from the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum in the Asian Pacific Thematic Historic District. The elegant, yet stylish restaurant space accommodates guests indoors for a unique setting and soon-to-be outdoor patio seating. Lucky Liu’s is open seven days a week, with hours from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm Monday-Friday, and 11:00 am to 12:00 am Saturday and Sunday.
