Shai Bitton and Stasie Bitton, owners of Cafe Smitten downtown, are shown last year at the site of the future Smitten at 11330 Ming Ave., at Seven Oaks' Grand Island Village. The restaurant in southwest Bakersfield had its soft opening on Monday.

Eager diners can sample Smitten now that the southwest shop launched with a soft opening this week. 

Opened Monday in Grand Island Village at 11330 Ming Ave., this is the second business for Stasie and Shai Bitton, who own Cafe Smitten downtown.

The new restaurant will offer a larger menu along with varied beer and wine offerings.
