Shanghai Village closes in Bethesda
Shanghai Village, one of the longest-operating restaurants still in business in downtown Bethesda, has closed at 4929 Bethesda Avenue. The Chinese restaurant has been in business for 37 years. Unlike some of the recent closures in downtown Bethesda that were caused by the closure of the nearby Regal Cinemas, and the County Council's wrecking of the "nighttime economy," the owner here says he is retiring and that "it has been a pleasure" to serve his customers for four decades in Bethesda.
