The owners of Alegria restaurant on Church Street in Vienna have decided to change their menu, transitioning from Mexican cuisine to a bistro menu.
In a letter to restaurant patrons on their Web site, the owners say the name will change as well: "...we have made the decision to introduce a new restaurant "Bazin's Next Door."
The restaurant will likely follow the tastes of the owners' flagship restaurant next door, Bazin's on Church which opened in 2006. Both are located at 111 Church St. in Vienna. Alegria opened in 2012.
The owners make their changes known in a letter posted on the Bazin's Web site:
With the New Year comes change. We at Bazins have been so very fortunate to be a part of the Vienna Community. When we first opened Bazins on Church 8 years ago, we knew no one in the area but over the years we have met a number of awesome people and made many new friends. When we opened Alegria on Church in April of 2012, we wanted to introduce a new cuisine to the area. We created an authentic Mexican cuisine and were proud of both our staff and menu. As proud as we are of Alegria we recognize that authentic Mexican cuisine does not have the same broad appeal that our Bazin's style food has. With this in mind we have made the decision to introduce a new restaurant "Bazin's Next Door." Patrick has created a new bistro style menu embracing the same fresh, seasonal cuisine our Bazin's guests are familiar with, including exciting vegetarian, and gluten free options. We will also offer a wide selection of wine. For those that love our Alegria cuisine, please stop by prior to our transition and tell us your favorite dishes. Some of your favorite items will be added our new Bistro Menu. There will be a few changes to the decor but what will not change is our commitment to bring to Vienna the finest in cuisine and service.
Join us New Year's Eve as we introduce to our guests a sample of what to expect at our new venue.
We look forward to seeing you and your friends in the coming year at "Bazin's Next Door."
Patrick & Julie
