A ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Sept. 26 will mark the opening of the new Café India Bar and Grill at 2201 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. in Bay View.

Ald. Tony Zielinski will join owner Rakesh "Ryan" Rehan for the ceremony, which starts at noon.

This is the second Indian and Indian-American fusion restaurant for Rehan – he also has a Cafe India in Walker’s Point.

The Bay View restaurant features a new kitchen, a remodeled dining space, a full bar and an outdoor hookah bar patio and dining space.

"I am pleased to have Café India adding its unique Indian fusion menu to Bay View, and I look forward to seeing the restaurant meet with success," says Zielinski.

Personally, I am very excited this new Indian food restaurant is opening. My family lives close by and has a tradition of going out for Indian food on Thanksgiving. I think this might be our new turkey day dining spot – if it's open, of course.
