The Mexican street food restaurant is expected to open in April 2020
Mexican street food restaurant Cantina Louie is coming to Palm Coast in spring of 2020, to serve up what the chain's website calls "creative specialty tacos, craft cocktails" and "traditional Mexican favorites."
According to Cantina Louie president and co-founder Ben Porter, the former site of Grand China Buffet at 10 Palm Harbor Village Way W. is in for a major facelift.
“It’s definitely the biggest renovation project we’ve had," Porter said. "People won’t recognize it at all.”
The low ceilings, for instance, will be lifted to a height of 12 feet, and the exterior will be redone to incorporate an outdoor patio area.
The roughly 7,000-square-foot building "should be one of our larger ones," Porter said.
He said the company hopes to have the Palm Coast location open in April 2020, after filling around 40 job openings.
