A new outpost of a popular dining spot opened in Westford over the weekend. Gene’s Chinese Flatbread Cafe made its debut at 175 Littleton Rd. on Christmas Day, an employee reached on Tuesday confirmed, and will be operating from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The restaurant unveiled its signature hand-pulled noodles close to where another Gene’s location previously operated: The restaurant’s proprietor, Gene Wu, used to have a location in Chelmsford, just down the road, but that spot has since closed. The Westford restaurant joins two other existing Gene’s Flatbread locations in Woburn and Boston’s Downtown Crossing, as previously reported.
The new Gene’s took over the former Sandrino’s Pizza space. True to its name, the restaurant serves Xi’an-style flatbread sandwiches, but it is better known for its dishes that feature hand-pulled noodles, including hot and sour soup, Xi'an cold noodles, lamb soup, and so much more.
