Italian Garden is moving to Old Town with a new concept; Senor Tequila is moving into former Italian Garden space

WICHITA — It was about this time in the summer of 2003 that Dino’s Italian Grille closed at 21st and Tyler and the Italian Garden moved in after leaving its Douglas and West Street space.

Now, the Italian Garden is closing and Senor Tequila is moving in.

Today is the Italian Garden's last day in business.

"We've been looking for a location in . . . Old Town, basically," says the Italian Garden's Mike Issa.

He hasn't found that space yet, but Senor Tequila's Jose Cesar Ayala wanted the west-side space.

"It's going to be a quick move, but it's going to be a good move," Issa says.
