We’ve discovered what will be moving into the space where The Dogwood was at 1021 Church Avenue: Hunger Pang, which describes itself as a “new American-Asian” restaurant.

From a sign posted on the door at the Church Avenue space:

Dear Neighbors,

We are also sorry to see The Dogwood close.

The owners have hand-selected us to take over the space, as they see us as the right fit for the neighborhood and will offer offer something that is unique to the area.

Hunger Pang has been a vision of Medwin Pang, who grew up right here in Kensington and worked in some of the finest kitchens in NYC. Paying his dues as a line cooke at Park Avenue Café under David Burke, “Omakase chef” under “Iron Chef” Morimoto at NOBU, Roundsman at Balthazar, and Sous Chef under the 3 Michelin Star Chef Jean Louis Pallidin.

Hunger Pang will serve “new American-Asian” food, reconstructing traditional Asian dishes applying Western influences. Our food will be culinary-advanced with modern eating practices in mind.

Please keep an eye out for our grand opening!

Hunger Pang has already started posting mouthwatering photos of dishes on its Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts, which we can’t wait to try.

  1. Sounds and looks great! Welcome to the neighborhood!

    I am sure it will be fantastic but I still hope that someone will open a reasonably priced, reasonably healthy sit down breakfast place on Church Ave at some point.

  3. Sounds fantastic, but I’m mentally pleading that they will be affordable. As in, at least a few entrees under $12-$15? With his resume, I fear not! But I still wish them luck, such a cute couple; the restaurant biz is not for the faint of heart. And glad the space will be filling right up again; even if it means a restaurant row I can’t afford to eat in, it’s better than the “tumbleweed” days.

  5. I hope they have vegetarian options! The pictures look delish and I would love to be able to go here with my vegetarian partner.

  7. Yes! I had the same worry and went to their twitter and saw lots and lots of things tagged “vegan” and vegetarian! The scallop looking plate is actually kohlrabi.

  9. I love how there can be negative or critical comments before a place even opens. Support your neighborhood by giving local businesses a fair shot. I look forward to giving Hunger Pang a try!
