There is a contract in on the old Que Pasa building, by the same folks that own the building that houses Captain Buzzy’s. The best part? The folks looking to acquire the building are talking to the experienced and talented Kendra Feather (of Fan favorites Ipanema and Garnett’s Cafe) about opening a new restaurant at the 25th Street location.
One potential issue is that the opening of Que Pasa was reliant upon a Special Use Permit (for a parking waiver). A clause in the original SUP causes it to expire with the sale of the building.
To open a new restaurant at this location, Feather will need a new SUP and the support of the community. Of this, she says:
I do want to have a full service restaurant that is open normal hours. I would like to have the same hours Que Pasa had. I would also like to serve alcohol. […]
I don’t want to open a place that the neighbors don’t want. That wouldn’t make any sense. I want it to be a place they will be proud to have.
