  • Goji Bistro opening soon in Cary

    Posted by Greg Cox on January 27, 2015

    Goji Bistro opening soon in Cary’s Maynard Crossing Shopping Center.

    Owners Diana and Oliver Yu are targeting Feb. 15 for the opening of Goji Bistro in Cary’s Maynard Crossing Shopping Center. The Yus have given Neo-Asia, the restaurant they previously operated in the building, a complete overhaul with a sleek contemporary look to reflect the new concept.

    The menu is still being tweaked, according to Diana Yu, but will expand on Neo-Asia’s twin bill slate of Chinese and Japanese fare to encompass a broader sweep of Asian cuisines. Yu also hints that the offering won’t be limited to traditional dishes, either, but will venture into fusion territory. The restaurant will have a full bar.

    Fans of Neo-Asia’s popular weekend dim sum will have to set their GPS for a different address. Dim sum won’t be offered at Goji Bistro, but it will now be served at the Neo-Asia on Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh (the original location, which otherwise remains unchanged), Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
