The restaurant is part of the new revitalization project for Midtown Row from Broad Street Realty and the city that is bringing a number of new businesses to the area.

In the past, the restaurant has been described by Brynn Jacoby, a spokeswoman for Broad Street Realty, as a “new experience” for the area because it brings a mix of new options for guests.

It has opened in a 2,900-square-foot space between Great Clips and FedEx near the right end of the shopping center.

Bonanza Social Kitchen, located at 220 Monticello Ave. Unit M, is owned by couple Steve Oh and Yeong Hong.
