The chain gang will be getting some competition in Broomfield. After a private event tonight, Bagali's Italian Kitchen will open to the public tomorrow at 570 Zang Street. “We just saw this spot, it’s among a bunch of chains," explains Stuart Bucy, who owns Bagali's along with his brother, Scott, and an old college friend, Lance Hollinger. "We're a mom-and-pop. One owner is going to seat you, and one is going to cook your food."
Since this is the second Bagali's, the Bucys now have their own mini-chain -- but the brothers plan to keep the attention personal both in Broomfield and at their original restaurant, the popular Bagali's Italian Kitchen in West Vail, which they'[ve had for close to ten years and where Stuart will continue to oversee the kitchen.
Starting tomorrow, the Broomfield kitchen will be serving from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week. Take that, Olive Garden.
