Norton Commons adds Legend of China restaurant

Norton Commons, the “traditional neighborhood” development in the East End, continues to grow its presence on the restaurant scene. The latest addition is Legend of China, a 50-seat Chinese restaurant at 9415 Norton Commons Blvd.

Gary Keefer and his wife Huiqin Luo have opened the new business on the ground floor of the building; they live above it. The restaurant had a soft opening May 13. Until they put together a full staff, the business will be mostly take-out.

Kessler met Luo when he was living in Shanghai. The dishes served in their restaurant are based on Luo’s home-style recipes, using home-made spice blends.
