It appears that Uptown may be getting another Mexican restaurant. We got the tip from Buena Park Neighbors:
Buena Park Neighbors is calling a meeting June 13th at 7:00pm at Michael's Pizzeria to get input on a proposal to open a new restaurant at the corner of Belle Plaine and Broadway. It will be an authentic Mexican restaurant that will also serve beer and wine. The owners are the same people who own and operate Michael's Pizzeria. The plan is to renovate the existing building which is currently a cleaners. Alderman James Cappleman has asked for this meeting to uphold a campaign promise that he will get input from residents of the ward for any proposed economic development. If you have an opinion and cannot make the meeting, just fill out this short survey: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NKF72LG
It's encouraging to see several new businesses decide to open in Uptown over the last two months, and kudos to Alderman Cappleman to reaching out to the community to get their input before approving a new liquor license.
