Bracco World Cafe & Island Bar is going even more global with a new menu, and the restaurant is lowering the prices on many dishes.
The new entrees make their first appearance today, March 20. Some of the items include bahn mi (Vietnamese sandwich), chicken shawarma (Mediterranean dish), shrimp ‘po boy (New Orleans-inspired sandwich) and a burger with kim chi (Korean-style pickled veggies).
“It has always been the interest of the owners to have dishes from all around the world,” said general manager Hong Phrommany.
There also are new vegetarian choices, including a garden burger made with beans, mushrooms and rice, and a Vietnamese noodle salad with crispy spring rolls.
The drink menu is changing, too, with a few more concoctions from around the world. There’s a caipirinha from Brazil and a drink with a Korean liqueur.
Bracco at 57th Street and Western Avenue is owned by TNT Hospitality, which also has Bracco in Okoboji, Spezia in Sioux Falls and Omaha, and Starz in Sioux Falls. TNT is family-owned and based in Sioux Falls.
While two-thirds of the menu has changed, several customer favorites from the restaurant’s 12-year history remain, Phrommany said.
The reduced prices are an attempt to boost Bracco’s draw as a lunch spot, the general manager said. And that benefit spills over into the evening. All day, diners can find meals from $8 to $15.
“This is a very competitive market,” Phrommany said of the Sioux Falls restaurant scene. “The ownership is always thinking about the competition and trying to stay ahead.”
