Nearly a year into the project, the long and winding road is finally reaching conclusion for Mi Casa Es Su Casa at 140 Orchard Street. Much has transpired in the south storefront space since our last progress report in August. The tattered sidewalk shed disappeared in favor of the ever-handy window paper, and fancy flood lights were installed above the marquee. Thanks to the latter, the tenement masonry is often bathed in red light during nighttime hours.

Now we finally have a status update to report. Mi Casa will likely open by the end of January.  That’s two months later than initially planned. No big surprise there. In the meantime, neighborhood peeps can feast their eyes on the interior. Seems pretty modest.

We are told that the menu is fusion-based, mixing elements of Cuban, Ecuadorian, and Spanish cuisines. Wine and beer license is still pending with the State Liquor Authority.
