Update: SE Asian Bistro Is Coming to Watertown

[Ed note: This article was updated on July 27 to reflect the name of the restaurant, which will not, in fact, be Kon Asian Bistro.]

An Asian restaurant with locations in Rhode Island and Maine is going to be opening a new dining spot in the western suburbs of Boston.

A message sent to us by Eat.Live.Blog via the Hiddenboston Twitter page indicates that Kon Asian Bistro is planning to open a restaurant in the Arsenal Mall where Ruby Tuesday used to be. This has been confirmed by the Arsenal Mall Twitter page, which informs us that the new spot will be called SE Asian Bistro. Kon Asian Bistro, which is in East Greenwich, RI, and Portland, ME (and soon, Johnston, RI), offers a Pan-Asian menu with a mix of Japanese, Thai, and Chinese fare, with the eateries having hibachi tables. It is not yet known whether SE Asian Bistro will have any similarities to the other locations (such as the Thai section of the menu, for instance); as soon as we find out more information, we will post an update here.

The address for this upcoming Asian spot in the Arsenal Mall will be: SE Asian Bistro, 485 Arsenal Street, Watertown, MA, 02472. The website for the Kon Asian Bistro restaurants can be found at http://konasianbistro.com/
