MERIDEN — A new restaurant focusing on Asian cuisine is slated to open soon on East Main Street.
A sign posted in the window of the 1371 E. Main St location, states that the restaurant, The Asian Invasion, will serve Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean food.
According to Building Official Don Angersola, there is currently no sales permit on file for the location. The owners could not be reached for comment.
The location was formerly the Mexican eatery Cucaramacara, which closed in August of 2018. According to a sign that was posted at the time, the closing was due to the suspension of the restaurant’s sales tax permit.
Representatives for FeFrost LLP, listed as the owner of the plaza, could not be reached for comment.
Sean Moore, Midstate Chamber of Commerce president, said although the restaurant would not be the first of its kind in the area there is “always room for one more.”
”It’s certainly becoming a nice little dining destination in the area,” More said. “When people go out to eat the destination is not a restaurant but a district.”
