The sign says that the owners also own Far East in Rockville and Jade Billows in Potomac, according to Wai. She said that she hasn't eaten at those restaurants, but online reviews suggest that the cuisine is more Americanized. Wai is the hero who translated Hunan Legend's Chinese menu, and she is hoping that Red Pearl will broaden the authentic Chinese menus around here:
Hopefully, it will take a cue from surrounding authentic Hunan and Szechuan Chinese restaurants and take up the charge to represent authentic Southern Chinese cuisine in Howard County! I'm hoping this will be a great place for wedding banquets, particularly with that lovely scenery. If the owners of Red Pearl are reading this, cook authentic, awesome Southern Chinese cuisine and you'll already have a wedding banquet lined up for the next year. :-)Thanks also to bmorecupcake who put up the original comment about Red Pearl's sign. Has anyone been to Far East or Jade Billows? Any idea when it will open? Any photos of the sign?
