Basil's celebrates new home along Manatee Ave.


BRADENTON -- Basil's restaurant is celebrating its new location in the Pebble Springs Shopping Center at 5917 Manatee Ave. W, with owners Jean and Nick Malliaras noting that Basil's is the second-oldest restaurant on Manatee.

Basil's opened its first location at Manatee Ave. West on May 4, 1987. Its original menu has remained the same with very few changes, with chicken and ribs prepared fresh daily.

Father Gus Malliaras was joined by his sons Bill, Nick and Stavaros when they opened. Since then, three more Basil's have opened.

"Basil's has remained consistent in its commitment to serve fresh, healthy and delicious food at reasonable prices," Nick Malliaras states. "Many items are specifically prepared just to fill an order." Basil's also caters parties and special events, and curbside service is available. To contact, call 941-794-5222.
