BRAVO! CUCINA ITALIANA OPENING AT BRIARWOOD MALL
IN ANN ARBOR ON DECEMBER 11, 2014
“Polished Casual,” Affordable Restaurant Serving Classic Italian Food
Opens Fifth Location in Michigan
Columbus, Ohio – BRAVO! Cucina Italiana, a BRAVO | BRIO Restaurant Group (BBRG) concept, will open its newest Michigan location at Briarwood Mall, located at 760 Briarwood Circle in Ann Arbor, on Thurs., Dec. 11, 2014.
BRAVO! Cucina Italiana is a “polished casual” restaurant offering classic Italian food amongst the shadows of Roman ruins. The subtitle “Cucina Italiana” means Italian kitchen, in which all cooking is done in full view of the guest, creating the energy of a live theater. BRAVO’s popular entrees include grilled steaks, chops and fresh seafood, as well as flatbreads, made-to-order pizzas and salads, similar to what one would find in an authentic “ristorante” in Italy.
With the Ann Arbor opening, BRAVO! created nearly 100 part- and full-time jobs, including servers, bartenders, hosts, line and prep cooks.
The 6,551-square-foot restaurant offers indoor seating for 219 guests, including 41 bar seats, and al fresco dining for up to 55 guests on an Italian-style terrace. BRAVO! also can accommodate groups of up to 40 people in a semi-private dining area.
Chef specialties include Mama’s Lasagna Bolognese, made with creamy Alfredo and BRAVO’s signature meat sauce; Eggplant Parmesan with marinara, Mozzarella and herb linguine; and Chicken Milanese featuring Romano-crusted chicken breast with Mozzarella, Pomodoro sauce and herb pasta.
Additional offerings at BRAVO! include Brunch, available Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m.–3 p.m.; BRAVO! Happy Hour, Monday–Friday from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. and from 9 p.m. until closing; $5 Martini Wednesdays; and $5 Wine Thursdays with select wines for $5 at the bar. BRAVO! offers gluten free and children’s menus, as well as a Lighter Side of Rome Menu with 16 appetizers, salads and entrees that are each 595 calories or less.
BRAVO! at Briarwood Mall is open Sunday–Thursday from 11 a.m.–10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m.–11 p.m. Reservations and call-ahead seating will be accepted and walk-ins are welcome. For reservations, please call 734-747-6200 or for more information visit www.bravoitalian.com.
