Looks like Maïs Arepas is well on their way to getting that alcohol license. Yesterday morning, owner David Mantilla's request to apply for his alcohol license was approved 6-0 by city council, and not just that, Stacy Head called Mantilla a "handsome young gentleman" and "the face of Central City."
Mantilla got a round of applause for his project and leadership, bringing business to much-afflicted Central City. Here's how he described his Columbian Creole cuisine to the council: "It's the food I grew up eating. Comfort food, something that makes you remember what your grandma used to cook." Mantilla already had menu suggestions for them, suggesting a dish known as bandeja paisa. "It's made with love."
Mellow Mushroom, the national chain with plans to open on Oak, was also given the green light by the council.
