The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene
Closed: Zong's Shanghai in Bethpage
Zongs Shanghai in Bethpage is out of business.
The restaurants opening chef was the elusive Zong Xing Tu (formerly of Joes Shanghi in Flushing and Manhattan), known for his sublime soup dumplings (also called juicy dumplings). A notice on the restaurant's Web site states that Zong left the restaurant Jan. 8, 2008.
Where is Zong right now? If I had my way, he'd be getting ready to open a new Shanghai-style place in Melville, near Newsday's headquarters.
