Bandidos Restaurant coming at old Leticia’s
We broke the news over a month ago that Hi Tops owners, Jesse Woodward and Dana Gleim, would be opening up a new Mexican-style restaurant located nearly right across the street from their popular gay sports bar. They are taking over the old Leticia’s spot in the new build of The Century at 15th and Market and a liquor license permit transfer request reveals its name: Bandidos.
The BAR reported Woodward and Gleim signed a lease with property owner Leticia Luna for the 3000 sqft space that was originally intended for a bank. Due to the 18-month moratorium on financial institutions opening in the Upper Market area, Luna approached the Hi Tops duo, hoping to utilize their business savvy, to instead open a restaurant in the space.
Woodward noted that the new restaurant would, “not be a taqueria” and focus more on service with the eatery hosting 12 outdoor seats, 80 indoors seats, and a bar lounge. The plans is to open for dinner during the week from 4 to 11PM and on weekends for brunch, lunch and dinner from 10AM to 11PM.
We’ll keep you updated with regards to more details and an opening date.
