The Porter Square building housing the brand new Potbelly Sandwich Shop is slated to get a new 200-seat restaurant called Red Dragon & Sushi, Boston Restaurant Talk reports. The restaurant goes before the board tomorrow evening for a common victualer license, allowing food and non-alcoholic beverages, with proposed daily hours from 11am to 11pm. Based on a record from the Arizona Corporation Commission, Red Dragon & Sushi appears to be under the same ownership as a restaurant called Red Dragon Express in Laveen, Arizona, which seems to be a takeout Chinese joint. Based on the sheer size of the proposed Cambridge spot, it'll likely be a different concept — and one would assume that sushi is involved.
UPDATE (February 2014): Boston Restaurant Talk reports that the restaurant will now be called Akai Ryu Shabu and Sushi, and it could open in February.
