Western Market additions just keep on coming.

Last week Chinese-American chef Tim Ma (Maple Ave, Water & Wall, Chase the Submarine, Kyirisan, Laoban Dumplings) announced the return of his American-Chinese take-out restaurant, Lucky DangerThe restaurant, which debuted in the pandemic, found a permanent home in Arlington, but will now expand back into the District at Foggy Bottom’s Western Market in summer 2022.

“We’re excited to get back to D.C,” says Ma. “We want to focus on our guests who helped us launch.”

Also at Western Market is Ma’s ExPat, a sports bar and sportsbook spot, which he operates with bar owner Ben Sislen and Union Kitchen co-founder Jonas Singer.

Lucky Danger’s menu of popular American-Chinese dishes includes signatures like sesame chicken, all the lo meins, mapo tofu, and the DC area’s most in-demand — crab rangoon. A multi-course feast (serves 2-3) featuring six dishes (appetizer, main, and rice) is available in meat and meatless versions for $48 and comes with an array of Lucky Danger’s signature superhero stickers.

Sounds like another reason to head to the (Western) Market.

Lucky Danger will be open seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
