Leasider Nicholas Mitchell has written on the Chit Chat Facebook Page about the new Chinese restaurant at 220 Laird Drive, the premises occupied for so long by Leonard’s. It is called Tao and specializes in Northern Chinese Cuisine. The owner was out Saturday night when The Bulldog dropped in but staff say that while the emphasis is on northern recipes there are dishes for other tastes as well. They recommend the Peking Duck. Spicy fare in Szechuan style is also to be had. Mr. Mitchell is a seasoned China hand as well from the signature photo on his own Facebook page which shows him in front of the Terra Cotta Army warriors at the splendid historic site in the northern City of Xi’an.
