Raleigh, N.C. — Brewery Bhavana was named a finalist in Bon Appetit's 50 best new restaurants in America.
The downtown Raleigh brewery, flower shop, book store and dim sum restaurant caught the attention of the magazine and website, which hailed its "bright, light and cheery" vibe.
Bon Appetit is also a fan of Bhavana's beer, urging people to order it "even if you don't normally drink beer - it's that good."
Siblings Vanvisa and Vansana Nolintha teamed up with brewer Patrick Woodson to open the venture at 218 S. Blount St. at the end of March. The restaurant is located next to the Nolintha's award-winning Laotian restaurant, Bida Manda.
