Daeil Chang was not counting on a freak blizzard when he flew in from Los Angeles to help his father open a second location of Kaysan’s Fifth Down.
A week that was slated for inspections and final details was instead filled with delays because of the chilly and snowy weather last week. Still, Chang was hopeful that the restaurant at 918 Woodland Plaza Run would open this week.
And it did.
The restaurant, which is in the former Woodland Lounge location, will have the same favorites from the Kaysan’s Washington Center Road location – Bulgoghi Burger, tacos and wings. There’s also a family room.
The restaurant opens at 11 a.m. daily, but Chang says the closing time might be earlier than the original location because the new restaurant is in a family neighborhood.
Dave Sassanella wrote that he might be a little early on this in an email sharing the Valentine’s Day specials at the Potawatomi Inn in Angola.
And maybe he was early – after all, Valentine’s Day is 30 days away. There’s 30 days to think about where to take your love, 30 days to make reservations.
Thirty days for restaurant books to fill up as the holiday is on a Friday this year. So sharing the details for a Valentine’s event might not be so early, after all.
Potawatomi Inn’s dinner will be 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 14, and will feature a menu designed for two. It includes a shared appetizer, choice of salad and entrée and a dessert trio to share. Cost is $59.95 a couple.
Reservations are required; call, 260-833-1077, ext. 496.
