With today's economy, local businesses are struggling to stay afloat, and many certainly are not looking to expand.
Popular family-owned restaurant Café at Pharr has a different perspective.
Café at Pharr has opened a new location in Buckhead and another location on the Westside, and this month, a new concept restaurant in Town Brookhaven - Baci by Café at Pharr.
“We want to provide customers with a great dining environment, affordable prices and a variety of wonderful, healthy menu items just like our regular lunch staples that we are known for,” said owner Johnny Liu. “As we considered the concept for our new location in Town Brookhaven, we thought serving both lunch and dinner better suited the area’s needs. Baci is the neighborhood’s new go-to spot for both a fantastic lunch and dinner.”
Baci, which means kiss in Italian, is the latest concept from Cafe at Pharr owner Liu and his business partner Chef Nellie Chudnovsky. Baci serves eclectic eats from the Mediterranean along with Eastern-influenced dishes, and relies almost entirely on fresh, seasonal and local ingredients.
The menu often changes daily because of the ingredients that are in-season, but some of the savory items on the permanent menu at Baci are: NY Strip, Chilean Sea Bass served Hong Kong style, the Baci Burger and Lobster Macaroni and Cheese.
Baci by Café at Pharr is located at: 705 Town Blvd., ste. 510, in Town Brookhaven. Baci is open Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. For more information on Baci, visit www.baciatlanta.com and be a fan of Baci on Facebook.
