Hiroshi Tsuji and Josalyn Barton will have a soft opening at "Newdle Bar," a combination Asian restaurant and bar, after months of work at the new Davey Resource Group building.
The Kent Ohio Development Facebook page recently added a few photos and announced the soft opening for Thursday afternoon.
"We are excited to be a part of Kents tight-knit community and will do our very best to be an attractive addition to the new downtown atmosphere," the page posted.
Tsuji said their business model is similar to WagaMama, a London-based noodle bar, and the noodle bar and restaurants that have exploded in popularity in New York City and other major metropolitan areas in recent years.
"It's a very healthy, trendy type of food," he said.
