285 Colonial Kitchen, a restaurant seeking to channel the French influence in Vietnamese kitchens during the turn of the twentieth century, is now fully open for business in The Prado.
Having recently secured its liquor license, 285 Colonial Kitchen is serving lunch and dinner.
During lunch, guests can order dishes like the Creamy Surf & Turf Rolls with imitation crab meat, beef, glass noodles, cream, and sweet sauce, a Buttermilk Shrimp Banh Mi, and several Pho, curry, and noodle dishes.
Its “upscale” dinner includes options like the Coq Au Vin Blanc, French Braised Chicken, Short Rib Bouillabaisse, and Glazed Duck Leg Confit.
“We wanted to create an upscale feeling dining experience without charging an arm and a leg,” Duc Tran, owner of 285 Colonial Kitchen, said in a press release Wednesday.
“Everything down to our service is elevated including a proper ‘sir’ and ‘ma’am’ greeting.”
Tran is also behind 575 Bistro in Kennesaw.
The restaurant’s interior boasts “French Blue” walls with blue and white French tiles and bistro-style chairs and booths, and a mural greets guests at the entrance.
A 600-square-foot patio offering seating for 24 finishes off the space.
285 Colonial Kitchen, at 5610 Roswell Road Suite 110, is open for lunch seven days a week from 11:00 am until 3:30 pm and dinner from 5:00 to 9:30 pm Monday through Thursday, 5:00 to 9:45 pm Friday and Saturday, and from 5:00 to 9:00 pm on Sundays.
285 Colonial Kitchen will donate a portion of its proceeds to local women and children’s shelters in tribute to Nam Phuong Hoang Hau, the last queen of Vietnam.
