VANDALIA — The former Mr. Lee’s Fine Dining restaurant at 7580 Poe Ave. has new ownership and a new name: Shen’s Szechuan & Sushi.
Mr. Lee’s owner Peter Lee retired from the restaurant business and sold the restaurant and property to his acquaintance Peter Song and to Shen Xie, who has served as the executive sushi chef at Mr. Lee’s for the last four years, according to a spokeswoman for the new owners.
There has been no change to the restaurant’s regular menu or staffing, but the new owners have added weekly specials, and are planning several events that will spotlight Chinese culture, especially music. Plans call for setting up a stage where Chinese opera performers and musicians can perform.
A grand opening event for Shen’s Szechuan & Sushi is being planned for Sept. 24.
