|Empire under construction|
No big surprise. Empire at Fan Pier, which was slated to open this week, will have its soft opening on June 27, according to a source at the restaurant.
The Asian-inspired restaurant by Big Night Entertainment Group (Gem, Red Lantern) will be at One Marina Park Drive as part of the new development in the Seaport District.
As we reported last week, the mammoth space of new construction will feature different dining options, including a lounge and bar, multiple dining rooms, private dining rooms and a large Asian exhibition kitchen. The menu, created by BNE executive chef and partner Kevin Long, includes sushi, noodles, wok dishes, steak, lamb and more.
