A few rumors were going around about this on a recent CC Facebook thread about “what businesses would everyone like to see in the neighborhood” and I was able to confirm with the owners that this is indeed happening.
The current operators of Grecian Delight are opening La Isla de Mojito, a restaurant featuring Puerto Rican, Colombian, and other Latin fare, in the former Kawayan Grill space between Columbia and Hillman City.
The husband and wife team have a history of working in this style of restaurant–including connections to the very popular La Isla in Ballard. I was told to expect sandwiches, traditional foods, and even live music.
The plan is to open some time in July.
If anyone knows anything more, be sure to let us know.
