Beijing Chinese restaurant to open on West Central

WICHITA — There has been a string of restaurants at 3008 W. Central — most recently Lexi’s Restaurant and Bar, Maharaja and New York Cafe — but there’s a new one coming that may have more staying power.

Zhiyong Liu is opening Beijing, a Chinese restaurant. The concept is the same as his brother Benny Liu’s popular Great Wall restaurants, which are throughout the city.

Beijing will offer traditional Chinese dishes, seating for 30 and carryout. It will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.

Ish Tamas of J.P. Weigand & Sons handled the deal.

Look for Beijing to open in April.
