Latin American darling Maria Empanada will grow in early September with a location at 8000 East Belleview Avenue, in the Belleview Promenade shopping center, Westword reported. This will be the second outpost of the business owned by chef Lorena Cantarovici, with the first one set at 1298 South Broadway.
Guests at the soon-to-open shop will get to sample varieties of empanadas, including breakfast empanadas and tartitas, and will enjoy an identical lunch menu as that at the original.
