New signage installed last weekend at the former Moon Gate Restaurant and Bar on the Bethesda-Chevy Chase border (at 4613 Willow Ln.) announces the official changeover of Moon Gate to the House of Foong Lin, Bethesda Magazine reported.
Moon Gate became the House of Foong Lin in January 2013. House of Foong Lin owner Fu Cheung formerly owned Foong Lin in Bethesda, which closed last summer in advance of Woodmont Triangle redevelopment.
"The Chinese restaurant had served Bethesdans and Montgomery County foodies for 25 years, and the announcement came with cries of disappointment, even as owner Fu Cheung told locals he was in search of a new location," Bethesda Patch reported.
Now, with the new sign, the changeover is complete, although Bethesda Magazine reported that Cheung was still waiting for new menu covers as of Monday, Feb. 25.
