Ra­dial Cafe’s sec­ond lo­ca­tion opens

GA Voice - - Nationalnews -

Gay-owned, eco-con­scious restau­rant Ra­dial Cafe opened its sec­ond lo­ca­tion on June 19, adding a Col­lege Park spot to the pop­u­lar Can­dler Park one.

Ra­dial Cafe owner Frank Bragg an­nounced plans for the Col­lege Park lo­ca­tion last Novem­ber. The 2,700-square foot his­toric store­front fea­tures a 1917 Coca-Cola mu­ral, along with room for up to 130 din­ers, in­clud­ing a 15-per­son bar. For­merly home to two white table­cloth restau­rants, the space was re­vamped to fea­ture the “in­dus­trial farm­house” look that’s be­come Ra­dial’s sig­na­ture, in­clud­ing hard­wood floors, ex­posed wooden beams and rus­tic dé­cor.

“If break­fast is the best way to start the day, it also proved to be the best way to open Ra­dial Cafe’s new ad­di­tion in Col­lege Park,” Bragg told Ge­or­gia Voice. “A steady flow of cus­tomers poured in on our first day, ea­ger for more of what they’d sam­pled dur­ing one of our four open houses the pre­vi­ous week.”

Bragg said a num­ber of Col­lege Park’s elected of­fi­cials stopped by dur­ing the open houses, in­clud­ing Mayor Jack Longino and Fire Chief Wade El­more, along with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Delta, Porsche, Wells Fargo and other lo­cal busi­nesses.
