Little Dipper Hot Pot House, the expansion-minded brand that lets diners curate their own steaming creations, is headed to Fairfax’s Mosaic District this fall.

Eater has learned the 2,000-square-foot new restaurant (2985 District Avenue, Fairfax, Va.) is shooting to open in the next two months next to BGR The Burger Joint. The Mosaic District outpost will have seating for up to 65 guests.

Little Dipper, which has two locations in Falls Church, Va. and Rockville, Md., offers gyoza and fried spring rolls to start, followed by a diverse lineup of $13.99 hot pot options.

The communal eating experience features eight kinds of “dippers” — including tomato, miso, curry, and veggie broth flavors — each accompanied by a long list of ingredients like cabbage and mushrooms. Diners can dictate the spice level and pick their preferred proteins and whether the bowl comes with rice or noodles.

The restaurant-packed Mosaic District, which also houses Brine and Iron Chef House, welcomed SoCal import Poke Bar this summer. The Merrifield neighborhood also houses another hot pot destination nearby: Uncle Liu’s Hot Pot.
