There is a new place to eat on Main Street in Bel Air this week.
The Orient, located at 15 N. Main Street, officially opened its doors Tuesday. The restaurant offers Chinese and Japanese cuisine and features a sushi bar.
"We didn't advertise, so it's a gradual start," David Huang, restaurant owner, said Thursday.
Huang said in a previous interview that he had been looking at Bel Air as a place to open his restaurant for about five years.
At the end of 2011 the eatery appeared ready to open, at least from the outside.
Huang hoped in November the restaurant would open New Year's Day 2012, but the opening date was delayed several times.
The Orient has achieved popularity at locations in Towson and Perry Hall, Huang told Patch in November.
