Utopia Good Food & Fine Art Celebrates a re-imagined and renewed second decade
2011-02-04 · By Editor
Downtown Long Beach’s Arts-centric dining experience, Utopia Good Food & Fine Art, is hosting a special celebration and artist reception on Saturday, February 12, 2011.
Now in their second decade of operation, Utopia’s co-owners, Kamran Assadi and Amir Zee, set 2011 as the year to re-imagine and renew their commitments to good food, diner satisfaction, the arts in Long Beach, and downtown’s east village community where their business is located. The two are rolling out an enhanced menu and wine list, monthly Salons featuring Artists and Arts Organizations, updated website, social networking tools and more.
The afternoon event includes an artist reception marking an exhibition of photographs by John Montich. Titled “Off The Hinges”, the work for this show is comprised of twenty 4×5 transparencies created from 35mm slides using a Daylab slide printer. These twenty transparencies are one of a set from the edition of 15.
“We’re inviting loyal customers and new friends to join us in celebrating a fresh direction forward,” said Utopia co-owner Kamran Assadi. His partner, Amir Zee, added, “We think it’s important to always think about how to better serve our customers and our community.”
The celebration and artist reception is Friday, February 12, 2011 from 3:00-5:30 pm, at Utopia Good Food & Fine Art 445 E. First Street, Long Beach, 90802.
An appetizer buffet will be available along with the regular food menu and wine list. There is no charge to attend this event, but RSVPs are encouraged. RSVP at utopiare-imagined.eventbrite.com. For more information, visit www.utopiarestaurant.net or call 562-432-6888.
