No bueno: Las Tias De Beto closed
Financial health was part of the issue too, he said. “How can I say this? You can’t spend $10 if you only make $6 or $7,” he said. Fernandez said he’s already had two or three offers from other entrepreneurs hoping to open a restaurant in the space, which is all brand new. But he’s going to need a while to consider those offers, he said.
Eat while you shop
You can shop for spices and exotic ingredients at the India Emporium, the international grocery at 3743 N. Rock Road. And now, you also can eat lunch there when you’re finished. Owner Zaheer Nazir said that he opened his restaurant-within-a-store, called the Pita Deli, several months ago. He serves Mediterranean items such as falafel, hummus, gyro, schwarma and more from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. (The India Emporium sells Middle Eastern ingredients, too.) He has seating for about 15 people in the back of the store, where the deli is set up. For more information, call 316-315-0370.
‘Bar Rescue’ watch party
The episode of Spike TV’s show “Bar Rescue” that features Chef Jason Febres of Taste & See is tentatively scheduled to air March 24. So Febres and his staff at the restaurant are tentatively planning a big watch party. They plan to open up the restaurant at 3825 E. Harry plus the new adjoined banquet room and put the show on big screen TVs. Febres will serve tapas before the 6 p.m. show, and then he hopes to offer a buffet patrons who want to stay can purchase once it’s over. He also promises a seafood ice bar, live music and “sexy cocktails.”
Febres was selected to fly to Los Angeles in January to be part of the show, in which gruff host Jon Taffer and a team of experts go to a struggling bar and try to turn it around. The restaurant is asking for RSVPs. Call 316-771-7393 if you want to attend. The watch party date will change if Spike TV changes the show’s air date.
