The area is swan…

We’ve often said that we don’t give chain restaurants enough love. We’d like to rectify that stance with the family bundle dinner we discovered at Bravo! Cucina Italiana in the Walden Galleria. Ostensibly, mall restaurants are subject to the overall declining foot traffic, so it makes sense they'd offer deals to entice diners in other ways. The wonderful meal w…
