WICHITA — The hot restaurant talk at the end of last year has continued into this year, and that's that the east-side Sabor Latin Bar & Grille is closing or converting into a new business.
"There were some rumors that we were closing, but right now we're going to keep it open," says Sabor district executive chef Jason-Paul Febres.
Febres says the Old Town Sabor had a better reception than the one that opened in late 2008 at the Waterfront.
"Downtown people . . . they're more open to try Latin food," Febres says."They're more open to new ideas."
The economy has been a factor, too.
