Will Triumphal Palace reopen this week?
A colleague asked if we had heard whether or not Triumphal Palace in Alhambra was closing down for good. The restaurant closed recently, with a "new management" sign in the window, and some worried whether the restaurant would indeed reopen. A phone call to the restaurant Monday allayed some of our dim-sum-black-hole fears. The restaurant, after "some renovations," according to a Triumphal Palace employee, will reopen Thursday. Fingers crossed, for suckling pig.
