University City's culinary scene continues its ascent towards becoming a Center City rival.
Joining a corridor of restaurants that stretch along 40th Street near the edge of the University of Pennsylvania's campus, Dim Sum House by Jane G.'s opened at 3939 Chestnut St. last week. The opening - an official celebration will take place on Wednesday – could mark the start of more expansion by the mother-son duo, Jane Guo and Jackson Fu, who already operate a Rittenhouse Square restaurant.
"We want to create a mold for Dim Sum House to replicate across different cities with the same focus on style, decore, service and quality of food," said Fu, who did not name any specific geographic areas being targeted. "Stay tuned."
With the opening, Dim Sum House creates 20 full-time jobs and 20 part-time positions. Fu says there is potential for additional hires in the future.
