No matter how much drama was at that nightclub, we always knew that the sporty Me-N-Ed’s offshoot would be there for us. Right, Victory Grill?
Sadly, not even Victory Grill — the longest-lasting survivor in the Mess That Milt Built — could be a winner at Granite Park. Though it made a good go of it. The Bee’s Bethany Clough reported on Tuesday that Victory Grill has closed and will be replaced next week by a new restaurant called RevoluciÃ³n Tequila Bar & Cocina, which opens May 5 from the same ownership group.
From Clough’s post:
“We’re focusing on traditional Mexican food made fresh,” said John Ferdinandi, president and CEO of Milano Restaurants International, the parent company of Me-N-Ed’s.
Corn and flour tortillas are made from scratch and the restaurant will use fresh vegetables, locally sourced when possible. They’ll have more than 70 types of tequila and mariachis will occasionally play in the restaurant, he said.
The restaurant is closed while the building is revamped. When it’s done, it will feature pictures of Pancho Villa and murals that contribute to a rustic, authentic feel.
“It’s eclectic. It brings in different aspects of Hispanic culture,” Ferdinandi said
