For months, Chef James Graham answered questions about the potential opening date of his rustic French cuisine restaurant Ba with a familiar refrain: "Ask the inspectors."
What Graham meant to say, of course, is that Ba would open its doors as soon as he was fully permitted to do so.
On Thursday, March 22, Graham published a post on his blog saying that the day had finally come.
We passed our final inspection. We have been given permission to sell food, beer, and wine. Our building has been approved by 11 city agencies in over twenty inspections. Our kitchen has been approved by the county health department, and state has given us our beer and wine license.
So, when does Ba finally open it doors? We sent an e-mail to Graham this afternoon, and we'll let you know as soon as we find out.
