Cheers to a New Year!

It’s been quite the year and we’re overjoyed to ring in 2023 with all of you. After what felt like a more normal year post-pandemic, we’ve really enjoyed seeing a full dining room of smiling faces and full bellies. Cheers to that!

New Year's Eve 2023!

New Year’s Eve is just a few days away, and we want to celebrate with you! Reservations are booking up fast, so make sure to claim your table as soon as possible. We will be open during our normal hours on both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Cheers!

Let’s toast to 2023. We have a feeling it’s going to be a GREAT year!

Chinese New Year 2023!

2023 is the Year of the Rabbit! People born in Rabbit years usually have soft and tender personality traits. Their lucky colors are red, pink, purple, and blue, and their lucky numbers are 3, 4, and 9. Their lucky flower is a snapdragon named for its resemblance to a dragon’s face.
As is our tradition, here at Sumiao, we’re celebrating by handing out red envelopes filled with money and enjoying some lucky foods with our guests. On Chinese New Year’s Eve, each dine-in guest will receive a red envelope and each takeout order will receive one too!
