Big Changes at Nana

By Chuck Sudo in Food on Mar 29, 2010 3:20PM


Long lines outside a restaurant are a sign that business is booming and Bridgeport brunch hotspot Nana has had people waiting in droves almost since its opening late last summer. According to co-owner Omar Solis big changes are in store for Nana, starting with an expansion that will add an extra 30-40 seats. That's already on top of their sidewalk patio license, which will add another 40 seats. Solis said that he's shooting for a May target date for completion of the expansion.

May will also mark the start of dinner service at Nana. To that end, Solis has brought aboard as his new chef de cuisine Guy Meikle, who's resume includes time served in the kitchens of BIN 36, bin wine café, Carlos' and Tru. Most recently Meikle was Executive Chef at catering company Finesse Cuisine. In addition to dinner service, Meikle will add some new dimensions to Nana's breakfast and lunch menus.
