Signage is up for The Parlor Dim Sum, a new Cantonese restaurant from Roger Li (Umami, Ki Ramen) coming soon to Lawrenceville. LOcated at 4401 Butler St. (map, the former Ki Ramen spot), it aims for a July opening. Writes a July 6 Pittsburgh Magazine preview:
The Parlor Dim Sum will be one of the few Cantonese restaurants in Pittsburgh, so Li is excited to share his culinary heritage with folks who may be unfamiliar with the cuisine.

Guests will be able to order a whole or half Cantonese roast duck that is cured and dry-aged in-house. The bird is chopped into bone-in pieces and served with the drippings over rice. Li says he will source 40 to 80 Maple Leaf-brand ducks a day from Connecticut and Long Island, New York.

Other offerings include a variety of dim sum, small appetizers such as steamed or pan-fried dumplings, egg tarts, crispy pork belly, chicken feet and spare ribs served in stainless steel baskets. Shareable dishes — which will be set upon Lazy Susans at each table — will include rice and noodle bowls as well as soups.
