Rockport — A new restaurant, Tomi Sushi and Noodle Bar, had its grand opening on Oct. 5 in Rockport. The Commercial Street restaurant offers a variety of Asian dishes which take their inspiration from the previous restaurant at that site, Mr. Wat.

Tomi's chef and owner, Vee Aramthip, is the brother of Mr. Wat, and said that he plans to keep the menu similar to that of his predecessor.

"My brother was also my [culinary] teacher, and I want to organize the restaurant the same way. We will have a lot of the same dishes that people came to love, as well as some new changes," said Aramthip on Oct. 5. Aramthip cooked professionally as a chef in Boston for many years before moving to Maine.

Even before Aramthip had hung the "Open" flag outside the facility, marking the official grand opening of the business, people began to arrive in the driveway in anticipation of the restaurant's first lunch service.

A copy of Tomi's menu consists of a wide variety of sushi and noodle dishes, including classic Japanese favorites like glass noodle soup, tempura, stir-fried ramen noodle dishes featuring fresh seafood. More adventurous and unique choices include lobster pad thai, surf clam sashimi and gourd maki rolls.

Tomi is located at 106 Commercial St. in Rockport, and is closed on Tuesdays.

I thought it might be a Thai restaurant?
