A new restaurant specializing in Chinese Hunan cuisine has partially opened its doors in Cambridge: Sumiao Hunan Kitchen made its unofficial debut yesterday at 270 Third St. in a mixed-use building in Kendall Square, and the restaurant is using the “soft opening” period, which runs through July 26, to gather feedback from diners.
The restaurant is offering a 25 percent discount for guests who fill out a survey after the meal, according to Sumiao’s website. “During our soft opening period, we will only be accepting guests by reservation,” the site reads, and reservations can be made by phone or online.
Sumiao Hunan Kitchen is the work of Sumiao Chen, a restaurateur and scientist who was born and raised in China’s Hunan province, as previously reported. Chefs Changchun Ji and Xinke Tan are overseeing the menu, which includes numerous small plates and dishes such as marinated cod steak, fried sweet and sour shrimp, and Gai Fan, a dish made with protein, vegetables, and rice.
