LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Bella Cafe finally opened on Tuesday after delaying their grand opening for months.

The restaurant that’s located in the Chevy Chase neighborhood of Lexington was originally planning to open in March.

“If you had told me last year that there would be a pandemic like this, and we would try to open a restaurant that is only going to do carry out and delivery. I would have said you've lost your mind, like there is no way,” said Director of Operations Tiffany Blair.

But that’s exactly what they are doing, one of the biggest obstacles to tackle is that without indoor dining it’s been challenging getting to know their customers.

“If there's an issue, they aren't going to know until they get home. So we have to be super careful that we are making sure everything is packed correctly and that people are happy when they get home,” said Blair.

All this week they are offering free delivery on their website.
