(Updated at 7:30 p.m.) A new Asian restaurant is moving into the ground floor of the new 1919 Clarendon Blvd apartment building.
The eatery is called Lucky Pot, and it will serve a variety of Asian dishes, including sushi, Chinese and Thai cuisine, according to Jeff Handler of Asadoorian Retail Solutions, which helped to lease the space. The restaurant is hoping to open by August.
Lucky Pot is one of several new businesses coming to the area of the “superblock” between N. Rhodes Street and Courthouse Road. It will join a 7-Eleven, a Hair Cuttery, a nail salon and a specialty olive oil shop on the block, although those businesses are moving into the 2001 Clarendon Blvd building, still under construction, next door.
