Help Bona Sera Cafe serve odd, fusion-inspired food in Ypsilanti, MI, Summer, 2012. Tom Yum Shrimp & Grits, Porchetta Banh Mi; come on!
Who is Bona Sera?
We are more than just a misspelling of the Italian greeting for Good Evening (Buona Sera!), for the past 3 years we have been an underground supper club in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area of MIchigan. Wonder Woman and Bad Fairy (our underground names) have produced underground events to benefit local community causes in barns, warehouses and the fabulous homes of generous hosts. We have worked with a loyal group of volunteers and adventurous diners to present our World, fusion, twisted-inspired versions of both classic dishes and new concoctions in 6 course dinners.
We are opening Bona Sera Cafe in beautiful downtown Ypsilanti in the summer of 2012 and are excited to become part of the revitalization of the home of Rosie the Riveter.
