Panda Garden closed, new Chinese restaurant to take its place

Southwestern Chinese fare heading to VCU.

From Richmond

Lapple will serve southwestern Chinese fare for lunch and dinner. Gao said she wants to make her menu as authentic as possible and will offer items in self-heating clay and metal pots. The business won’t do delivery.

Panda Garden (948 W. Grace St.) closed this past weekend but you won’t have to wait long to sate your Chinese food cravings. The business was sold to Apple Gao and Adrien Liu who plan to open the renamed Lapple in April. Apple and Adrien previously worked for Peter Chang so hopefully that’ll transfer over to Lapple.
