LITH Carryout Restaurant Goes Sitdown

The game of business musical chairs along the Randall corridor will continue next week when  Chen's King Wok restaurant on the east side of Randall in Lake in the Hills closes and Chen Chinese Cuisine opens right across the road Wednesday.

"King Wok was mostly carryout," said owner Ming Chen.  "Here (formerly a Baker's Square restaurant) there's seating for 140 people."

Besides an updated oriental decor at the new restaurant Chen said he plans to expand his menu for a more contemporary flair.  "We're going to add lettuce wrap appetizers," he said.  "We're going to have more fish including Szechuan fish.  We're going to add Pad Thai noodles, too."

Chen said the new restaurant would have a "soft open" before getting up to full speed.  Right now he said he's recruiting a wait staff for the new sitdown operation.
