BCN Paella & Tapas initiated its soft opening Friday at 3401 Bonita Beach Road in Bonita Springs. The local family owned business plans a grand opening with music in October. For now, the restaurant is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The new restaurant is in Beach Road Plaza on the south side of Bonita Beach Road just west of U.S. 41. Its location was home to Ahana’s Bombay Grille for more than five years until the Indian restaurant relocated earlier this year to Sunshine Plaza. The menu for the Barcelona paella and tapas bar features Spanish dishes, sangria and wine with recipes and products imported from Spain. The business also caters private events and takes pre-orders for pickup or delivery.
