Fu Cheung is still looking for a new location for his Foong Lin Chinese restaurant, even as he handled a heavy lunch rush and greeted some other nearby restaurant workers who came to say goodbye.

Tonight will be his last under the familiar green awning at the corner of Norfolk and Fairmont Avenues.

Foong Lin and the others will be shuttered to make way for a new 17-story apartment building.

A sign outside thanked customers “for 25 wonderful years.”

Cheung hopes it can be more than 25, but it might not come in Bethesda. He’s looking at a spot in the Woodmont Triangle area, but if that doesn’t work out, he said he’s likely headed up the road to Rockville.
