From one end of Seventh Avenue to the other, restaurants and bars have been shutting down, reopening or changing locations. Deep Blue Restaurant closed for keeps after only a few months across the street from Casa Atitlan. Next door, Taboo Bar has been shut for weeks and appears closed.
Down the street, Blue Parrot Bar and Grill will be closed until October. El Barrio Bar has reopened, with a new Mayan Cuisine night that has proved popular. Next door, Ventana Blue Restaurant has new hours, opening at 6 PM on Wednesday through Sunday.
The Deep End Bar and Pool closed permanently, but the same crew is doing Smokin’ Joes’ Sunday BBQ at another pool near the end of Seventh Avenue. We’ll have a full report tomorrow.
And The Clover Restaurant reopened under new management. But without Paul, the founder, Clover is not what it used to be and has turned into a ghost town that we can no longer recommend.
