After shuttering downtown in 2011, Passion Food Hospitality brings back its TenPenh Asian restaurant tomorrow — this time in Virginia.
There’s seating for a whopping 260 people throughout the large restaurant, which features a bar, a sushi bar, a promenade, extensive lounge, private dining areas, and more. The restaurant’s located in the Silverine Center development, with Asian-themed rooms like a Jade Room, Tea Room and Imperial Room. Diners will find Buddha figurines and other statues, multiple murals, and more.
TenPenh will feature a menu from chef Jeff Tunks of dishes hailing from Vietnam, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan, Singapore and The Philippines (more menu details to come in tomorrow’s opening alert). Think dishes like steamed buns, shrimp toast “hot pockets,” and some surprising additions like...Nashville hot chicken? There’s a full sushi bar, too. Some dishes from the original restaurant will return, like Chinese-style smoked lobster.
