La Fiesta Mexican restaurant, 2830 Adlai Stevenson Dr., may reopen in June with a new owner and a new look.
Omar Hernandez, who also owns Omar’s Latin Fusion Cuisine, purchased La Fiesta and temporarily closed it earlier this year.
While the restaurant was closed, Hernandez renovated the building and revamped the menu to include more fresh dishes. He says the building is ready, and the final hurdle is obtaining a liquor license.
Hernandez used to work at La Fiesta under the previous owners, and he says he’s excited about opening the restaurant again.
“It’s a great location,” he said. “I know a lot of people on that side of town who are happy to see it reopen.”
