A new take-away style restaurant with a tiny kitchen is aiming to make a big splash at Quarry Ponds Town Center in Granite Bay.
Pullman Kitchen, set in the center's fresh market, is hosting a grand opening this weekend featuring a free pasta demonstration from 3 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
The restaurant is planning to repeat the event July 11 as well.
Chef and owner Sovy Medved said the 448-square foot kitchen is probably one of the smallest in the region, but it won't hamper her and Chef Christian Flood from turning out the best food at reasonable prices.
"We're going to concentrate on providing good food and good service to the public," she said.
The menu includes things like pulled pork or ribeye steak sandwiches served with fresh fruit and pasta salad for $6.95. Seasonal dinner items also will be available.
She's also not letting the previous tenant's failure to thrive or the center's chapter 11 bankruptcy filing sway her thoughts.
"We're determined to stay and produce the best possible food we can do at reasonable prices," she said.
Pullman Kitchen, located at 5550 Douglas Boulevard, Suite 140, is open 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
