When Restaurateur Nancy Batista-Caswell learned of a three-story building for sale across from her existing space, she knew opportunity was calling; Practically overnight Ceia Kitchen + Bar, tripled in size, Nancy opened a second restaurant in the old space, and Ceia managed to gain even more charm. With two bars and an open service kitchen, all wrapped by brick walls, large chandeliers(think restoration hardware) and regal high-back chairs, Ceia’s new digs focus on making you leave happier than when you arrived. Behind the pass is Chef Patrick Soucy, a farmer’s chef who tends his own organic garden and crafts New American dishes heavily influenced by France,Portugal,Spain, and Italy. By combining local, seasonal ingredients he creates fresh takes on familiar flavors with dishes like Lobster and Octopus Salad, Sweat Bread and Foraged Mushroom, Fava Beans, and Lovage.
