The restaurant, at 148 Main Street, features a sushi bar, Chinese food, Thai specialities and hibachi, although the hibachi is not cooked at the table.
Among the space's special features is a wall covered in stone.
Bar offerings include some old-style Asian-type drinks, the kind that come in special containers complete with an umbrella or two, as well as sake, beer, wine and other cocktails.
After Taste of China closed a year ago, renovations began inside. By the summer, the entire building was undergoing a significant facelift, with all new siding.
The building is owned by Jason Yau. His family bought it in 1995. In May, he told EG Patch that it was time for a change.
