spice streetSpice Street is on the way out, but some of its new menu items could stick around.
Spice Street is going from exotic to down home beginning in April.
After a 10-year run at University Mall, the Silk Road-inspired restaurant will change directions to fit with owner Giorgio Bakatsias' travels in small-town America. City Kitchen will take its place, featuring American brasserie cooking with locally grown ingredients.
"The new restaurant is a place of coming together to share experiences and favorite recipes with a wholesome approach, a true celebration of what the vibrant and diverse Chapel Hill community has to offer," Bakatsias said in a press release.
Giorgio Hospitality Group spokeswoman Lyndie Benson says City Kitchen is already working on its new menu items and that it will feature familiar items and comfort foods. Spice Street will close in mid-March to redesign the interior, and then City Kitchen will open in April. TW
