Coming to The District in Tustin: Asian Mint
What surprises me about this new place to open at The District in Tustin isn't that it's called Asian Mint**; it's the fact that it isn't opening at Diamond Jamboree, which currently holds the deepstack in restaurants, lording over all its new tenants like a gambler on a roll counting his chips.
So far, at Asian Mint's location across from Borders and next to Peet's Coffee, the sign's up, the windows are blackened, and there's the obligatory notice to sell alcohol beverages. Also, they're hiring. So if you know how to make sushi or how to make Thai food -- or better yet, both, you might want to give 'em a ring.
