A food hall that opened in D.C.’s Chinatown this summer already has its eye on Tysons for a second location.

Restauranteur Zong Chen, one of the operators of Luna Hall DC (625 H Street NW), has leased 6,800 square feet on the ground floor of 8201 Greensboro Drive, a 12-story office building near Tysons Galleria, the Washington Business Journal reported yesterday.

The space previously belonged to Sapphire Tysons, an Indian restaurant that has now closed.

It’s unclear what eateries will occupy the new food hall and when it might open. Luna Hall didn’t respond to a request for comment by press time.

However, Chen told the WBJ that the Chinatown location has drawn customers from Northern Virginia and Maryland, inspiring the plan to expand into D.C.’s suburbs.

“We have people driving from Arlington and Tysons saying this is the best dumpling you can get locally,” Chen said to the WBJ. “People come to us because we make delicious food, so I want to do this deal.”

Luna Hall had a soft opening in D.C. on June 7, initially introducing Kung Fu Tea and TKK Fried Chicken franchises before adding new concepts: Dumpling District (not to be confused with District Dumplings in the Mosaic District) and Pollo Aria, a Peruvian chicken eatery.

According to the WBJ, Chen is also planning to add food halls at Pike Center in Rockville and in Ellicott City, Maryland.
