The Bradley has closed in The Alley

February 13, 2018

The Bradley is no longer part of downtown Aiken’s dining scene.

A sign taped on the door that was the restaurant’s main entrance says, “THIS BUSINESS IS CLOSED.”

According to a recorded message, The Bradley’s phone number “has been disconnected or is no longer in service.”

Kevin Bradley, who was originally from England, owned the restaurant, which opened in The Alley in February 2016.

He called the eatery an “American brasserie” because the cuisine was modern American with French influences.

“In Europe, there are a lot of small restaurants like this – high quality, good food, all-scratch kitchens,” Bradley told the Aiken Standard. “The chefs make everything from scratch, from the hummus to the bread to everything. Everything’s from scratch.”

Menu items during The Bradley’s run included fish and chips, steak-frites, wild salmon, kale salad, burgers and seared North Carolina scallops.

Bradley also owned an Italian restaurant, Alloro, which opened in the spring of 2016 and was adjacent to The Bradley.

Alloro closed before The Bradley.

Whiskey Alley opened in the old Alloro’s location last fall.

Bradley couldn’t be reached for comment before this story was published.
