Asian, Tortilla Restaurants

To Open at Bowie Mall

Two local restaurant groups have signed leases for space at the Shoppes at Bowie Town Center. The owners of Hunan China plan to occupy 1,600 square feet with a restaurant called Ichiban, which will serve Japanese and Chinese cuisine, and California Tortilla will open a location occupying 2,400 square feet.

Both are scheduled to be ready for business in January. Other stores at the shopping complex include David's Bridal, Myer-Emco Audio Video and Factory Card & Party Outlet. California Tortilla has nine other locations in the Washington area; Hunan China restaurants are in Largo and Odenton.
