On Thursday, July 12, Ema Haq held a soft opening of Ema’s Restaurant at its new location in Centerpiece Shopping Center and reopened Bailey’s Seafood & Grill as Bailey’s Bistro right next door. Both restaurants received significant menu and structural changes following a June 4 closing.

This week Ema’s and Bailey’s Bistro work to complement each other, with Ema’s serving breakfast and lunch and Bailey’s offering dinner and event catering. The combined location will facilitate business-style breakfast, lunch and dinner meetings in new meeting rooms that hold as many as 90 people. In addition, the new location features patio seating outside the restaurants.

While Bailey’s and Ema’s have kept a number of popular dishes, diners will see new menu items at both restaurants. In addition to the breakfast meals and hot plates that Ema’s served at its previous location in the Acadian Village shopping center on Pinhook Road, the menu now includes a larger variety in salads and wraps, as well as seafood options.  Meanwhile, Bailey’s Bistro now offers Creekstone Farm brand steaks — USDA certified Angus that is antibiotic and hormone-free.

According to Haq, the two restaurants opened to a crowd of more than 100 Thursday and through the weekend. The restaurants will operate Thursday through Sunday until August, when they will open seven days a week. Ema’s Restaurant is open for breakfast from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and lunch 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bailey’s Bistro is open for dinner Thursday through Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday brunch from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
