Han Spot Update (Restaurant Taking Over Union Jack’s Space in Rio)

Back in May we let you know that the owner of popular dim sum restaurants China Garden (Rockville) and Han Palace (Tysons, Woodley Park, Barracks Row), Chris Zhu, announced that she is bringing a new restaurant to Rio– taking over the space that was previously home to Union Jack’s until June 2020.

It has since been confirmed by Rio that the restaurant will be known as Han Spot. Construction began a few months back with the previous interior being removed and now the restaurant is working on constructing the new space (photos below).

Zhu made the initial announcement via social media in May, “Another milestone. New baby from Han Palace coming to Rio Gaithersburg. Next to AMC theater & Guapo’s.” One of Zhu’s other restaurants, Han Palace, offers an all-day dim sum menu. Scallops, shrimp, pork/crab dumplings, rice rolls, barbecue pork buns, lobster sticky rice, Han-style filet mignon, and Peking duck are included on the Han Palace menu. An opening timeframe is not yet available, we anticipate a mid to late 2024 opening being a likely scenario. A menu from Han Palace can be seen below (pinch and expand):
