QUE DELICIOSO News On Casa Blanca Panchos Cantina

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington will soon have two Mexican restaurants as Casa Blanca is expected to open soon, following the August launch of Pancho’s Cantina. Both restaurants were recently in front of town boards with requests.Pancho’s Cantina Adds Mariachi BandPancho’s Cantina, located at 206 Ballardvale Street near Target, recently received an Entertainment License from the town. Owner and Executive Chef Fonzi Chavez came in front of the Board of Selectmen last month and explained his desire to host a mariachi band in his restaurant on its slow nights (Monday-Wednesday). The 3-4-piece group will perform as they walk around to tables and around the bar. Chavez stressed it’s nothing like a concert and there will be no ticket sales. Selectmen unanimously approved the request, contingent upon successful review of the Town’s Building Inspector, who noted that if the building’s capacity exceeds 125 during a performance, there would need to be a license crowd control management present. Chavez responded that both he and his have taken the necessary training.Casa Blanca’s Opening SoonCasa Blanca, located at the old Chili’s location in the Wilmington Crossing plaza (207 Main Street), will be opening “early next year,” according to Wilmington Health Director Shelly Newhouse.  The restaurant’s floor plans were up for review at the November Board of Health meeting. The owners have already obtained an alcohol license from the Board of Selectmen back in July, when a fall opening was suggested. Since then, however, the restaurant’s Andover location was forced to close for two months (September 19-November 16) due to the Merrimack Valley gas explosions. Wilmington Apple will report on the restaurant’s opening date once it’s officially announced.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
