AsiaTown in the News


AsiaTown is joining the national movement to support small businesses, but not just on Small Business Saturday. Do the Shop Small Crawl year-round to support AsiaTown small businesses.

We are launching Imagine AsiaTown, a process to shape a collective strategic vision for our neighborhood’s future that is centered on the unique gifts each person brings to help turn that vision into reality. We invite you – as community members who live, work, shop, and visit AsiaTown – to imagine and contribute to this future.

We're offering free meals to those in need of food and encouragement while supporting AsiaTown small businesses. Check back here for updates about meal distributions and how to help.

Open in AsiaTown

All AsiaTown restaurants are now open for takeout or delivery, and many are open for dining! Wondering what to order? We have you covered with some meal recommendations! We're keeping a running list of restaurants that are open during the pandemic.
