High-end Chinese restaurant coming to Rittenhouse

Jane G's is targeting next summer at 1930 Chestnut St.

High-end Chinese restaurant coming to Rittenhouse


When the Chinese eatery Noodle Heaven closed in 2003 in front of the Bellevue on Broad Street (where Bliss is now), owner Jane Guo vowed a return to Center City.

She's making it happen.

Jane G's is planned for 1930 Chestnut St., the art-deco apartment building at 20th and Chestnut.

Guo emphasized that it will not be a noodle house or a variation of Noodle Heaven, as Foobooz speculated.

It will be high-end, refined cooking from multiple regions of China, with a bar, she told me.

Guo, who owns the Noodle Panda restaurants in Pottstown and Reading, said she does not expect to open before next summer. (At last! A restaurateur truly acknowledging how long such a project will take, from community approval to city approval to construction.)
