It's the end of an era. A tipster tells us that Mandarin House on 5th Avenue is in its twilight; the restaurant's last day of business will be Thursday, October 31.
The eatery, which has been open for nearly 35 years, sits on a 15,000-square-foot lot; a representative at the restaurant told Eater that a new 30-unit residential project is destined for the space.
Though the Americanized Chinese food won't be missed, Eater's sad to say goodbye to their Tiki drinks, including the flaming Volcano bowl. Good news is that the exact same menu, cocktails included, can still be found at Mandarin House's La Jolla location (6765 La Jolla Blvd.), which isn't going anywhere soon; the rep says that they have a solid lease for the spot.
