WICHITA — Jason-Paul Febres once again has left Sabor Latin Bar & Grille.
Last year at about this time, he left to start his own restaurant amid differences with owner Melad Stephan, but another restaurateur nabbed the space he wanted.
Febres and Stephan reconciled, and Febres returned to Sabor last summer.
Now, he’s teaming with Roni Attari, another employee of Stephan's Empire Restaurant Management, to open Yuca Latin Bistro.

The restaurant, which will offer Latin fusion food, will open within a month in the former Quiznos building on Tyler just south of Central.
"Everybody was telling me, 'Open on the east side! Open on the east side!' " Febres says. "But I guess the west side has a lot of potential."
