What's Up With the Orient?

We went by the Orient several months ago only to see that they were closed for renovations. Just called a few minutes ago......no answer. Does anyone know what's going on? With only it and Fortune Wheel as the only authentic Cantonese Chinese on the Island, it'd be a shame to lose either one.

        That would be great news, but I heard that Tommy may not be involved. Any one know the details?

            My daughter is friends with the owners daughter. I've been bugging her to find out when they would re-open. This news was posted on her facebook page this week.

            Same family owns and operates. Not sure who Tommy is, but I got this news from the owners daughter.

              Tommy Tan is the owner of The Orient. Is it his daughter's FB page?

                That's affirmative.

          The windows are still covered. It appears that alterations are still going on.
