An Asian restaurant will spring out of the small space that for several years was Continental Ranch's go-to spot for ice cream.

Asian Spice Restaurant takes over Cold Stone Creamery's 1,200-square-foot storefront in the Fry's plaza at 7850 N. Silverbell Road, according to the leasing agent Commercial Retail Advisors LLC.

The owners could not be reached for comment, but the leasing agent said Asian Spice, which will specialize in Chinese and Asian cuisine, is expected to open in July.
