Golden Bay opening target moved to January 11, 2012

Golden Bay hopes to fill void left by sale, closing of Long John Silvers. Korean, a first time ethnic food in Columbia coming with Golden Bay, now scheduled to open January 11, 2012 at 1764 Campbellsville RD, Columbia, KY.

Peter Cheng announced yesterday that the restaurant group which now includes the Circle R and Tray's Garden and earlier announced the opening of a third, will open that store by January 11, 2012, instead of the earlier target date of January 18, 2012.

The restaurant will be called Golden Bay, and will be located in the one-time Chilaquiles Restaurant. On Monday, the Chilaquiles name still badged the Northside Columbia, KY building, but that is only temporary, Mr. Cheng said.

Golden Bay will feature three lines: Fish and Chips/Seafood, Mexican, and Korean Cuisine, with 10 featured items in each group. A Korean chef is already hired for the restaurant, Cheng said.

Golden Bay is hoping to fill a void left by the closing of the Long John Silver's Seafood Restaurant in the 1000 block of Jamestown Street. That building has been sold, with neighbors speculating that it will be replaced by a banking facility.

Cheng said that plans to make the Circle R a 24 hour restaurant by January 1, 2011, is still on track.

Not Chilaquiles: Peter Cheng, who is opening a third Columbia restaurant at this location on Campbellsville Road, Columbia, KY by January 11, 2012, said that the Chilaquiles sign now showing is an old sign, which will be replaced by "Golden Bay."
