Although the former Mid City Grill signage is still fixed to the exterior of the building, incoming Latin American eatery Bolero Latin Cuisine is on track for a mid-October opening in Midtown.
The restaurant located at 51 W. Forest Ave. is owned by Vicente’s Cuban Cuisine founders Vicente Vazquez and chef Roberto Caceres. Caceres tells the Metro Times that the 130-seat restaurant will showcase dishes from throughout South America ranging from several different varieties of Peruvian ceviche to Argentinian-style steaks as well as tapas and paella. From the bar, diners can also look out for a selection of Argentinian and Chilean wines, Peruvian pisco, mojitos, and sangria.
Roberto Caceres, whose family is from Chile, will helm the kitchens. Caceres’ son Robert has also been tapped as a general manager for the forthcoming eatery.
When it finally opens its doors next month the eatery will serve lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday. Stay tuned for updates closer to the debut.
