Little Dipper Hot Pot House To Open in Rockville
Town Square site is restaurant’s second location
The Little Dipper Hot Pot House moving into Rockville Town Square is expected to open in early February, according to Federal Realty Investment Trust, which owns the Town Square complex.
Little Dipper brings a quicker, more casual twist to an East Asian tradition, according to a Federal Realty statement. Customers can choose a flavored broth, a type of meat, a level of spice and a variety of other ingredients and watch as their dishes are simmered at the table. Guests can also add tofu, rice or egg to complete their dishes.
The restaurant has signed a lease for 2,800 square feet at 101 Gibbs St., which had been a Noodles & Co. restaurant. The Little Dipper Hot Pot House has one other location in Falls Church, Virginia.
Deirdre M. Johnson, vice president of asset management at Federal Realty, said Thursday the company is trying to make Rockville Town Square a destination for international cuisine to support the diversity of residents that live in Rockville and Montgomery County.
