The “Malden Eats” dinner celebration heads to Tornado Restaurant & Lounge (2 Florence St.), a fairly new Malden restaurant serving “Asian-inspired tapas,” on Tuesday, April 8 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20. Call 781-388-3988 and reference the “Malden Reads” event. Two of the co-owners, Shanie Leung and Jenny Le, met at Malden High more than a decade ago. The duo saved their pennies from after-school jobs to open up their dream restaurant. And, yes, the name was inspired by Malden High’s “Golden Tornadoes” mascot. Sounds like a perfect storm.
