Café Zen, a bistro and sushi bar, opened its location at American Tobacco in November.
Café Zen held its grand opening at the American Tobacco Campus (ATC) on Monday, November 21, 2005.
CBC VP of Community Relations Paul Pope invited the ATC staff, and FOX 50 Account Executive Dan Straub, to be some of the first patrons to try out the newest addition to the ATC restaurant scene. Café Zen features Asian style dishes such as Tempura Shrimp, Panang Chicken Curry and Hibachi Steak & Shrimp, along with a wide arrange of Sushi and Sashimi specialties. Pope now has the distinct pleasure of being the first paying customer!

Despite torrential downpours and blustery weather, the Bistro was crowded with other excited patrons, including a large contingent of CompuServe employees.
