Maïs Arepas, 1200 Carondelet
Projected Opening: September
This is a great sign for for Maïs Arepas and Central City. David Mantilla's new restaurant has already been praised by city council for fighting the blight and looks to bring new Latin flavors to the city with Columbian arepas and small plates. And now they look close to opening. Their voicemail confirms the opening date is at the end of September, so maybe next week.
