Carmelita vegetarian restaurant at 7314 Greenwood Ave. was closed last week for remodeling and hoped to reopen last Friday night, but the remodeling took longer than expected. I talked to Mary, the host, this afternoon, and she said they now plan to open at 5 p.m. Tuesday night.
The remodeling included installing a new bar along the east wall of the main dining area. “It’s really rich colors, and it will seat about 12,” she said. Their secluded outdoor patio remains open for the summer.
And addressing rumors that the restaurant was for sale, Mary said emphatically not! “Why would we sell now after doing all this work? We’re just getting bigger and better,” she said.
