“It’s important to us that our guests feel at home and comfortable, yet we also want the space to be interesting,” said owner Scott Piland in an email. He and his business partner, Tom Dynan, hired restaurant design firm, Mitchell Garman Architects, to design the 1,800-square-foot space.
Unleavened Fresh Kitchen is located at 1900 Abrams Parkway. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m.
