(Sacramento, California, United States) – Petra Greek Restaurant, which is located in the heart of downtown Sacramento, will expand by opening another location to Folsom’s Palladio at Broadstone. They will occupy the space where the San Francisco Bay Cafe was located. The cafe closed in late 2015 and had been sitting vacant until the owner of Petra Greek Restaurant decided to make the move to open a new restaurant. Petra is known in the area for serving up delicious Greek food such as gyros, spanakopita, Greek salads, and popular desserts such as baklava. They will also open in a second location in Golden 1 Center.
The restaurant owners have had their eye on expansion for several years, it just hadn’t been the right time. According to Michael Raptakis, the general manager of the Sacaramento location, they first stated looking at Folsom’s Palladio four years ago. Upon analysis, they determined that the area wasn’t getting enough traffic. Times have changed, making this a great time to expand. Petra isn’t the only upcoming project at Folsom’s Palladio. They are simply one of many, including a Barnes and Noble’s book shop, a movie theater, and a Brazilian restaurant.
