Town Crier

WILMINGTON — The Town of Wilmington is one step closer to seeing the opening of Casa Blanca Restaurant.

The Board of Select­men has unanimously vo­ted to approve a common victualer’s license and an entertainment license for the business, which is managed by Jorge Vargas and operated by Green Sauce, in­corporated. It is set to operate at 207 Main St.

According to Town Ma­nager Jeffrey Hull, the health director and buil­ding director both recommend approval for the common victualer’s license. According to Var­gas, approval for plumbing, gas, and electric at the restaurant is currently being finalized.

With regards to an op­ening date, “We’re thin­king the third or fourth week of February,” said Vargas. “I don’t want to say a couple of weeks, but then take more, you know? But that’s my guess.”

In response to questions from Board Chair Greg Bendel, Vargas stated that the restaurant will be open seven days per week. Hours of operation will be 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. on Sunday – Thursday, and 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The entertainment license will ac­count for seven television sets at the bar and a jukebox.

“I want to wish you all the best of luck,” said Selectman Michael McCoy.

“I think everyone’s ea­ger to get there, they’re going to skip the questions and hopefully we’ll go right to the meal,” said Bendel. “We wish you well moving forward, much success.”
