Dr. Raj Miniyar’s new international food court at 114 Broad St., below his lofts, will be home to a satellite edition of La Conquista Mexican Restaurant on Martha Berry Highway in Armuchee. No changes are planned for the main restaurant; Alejandro Perez instead is planning a smaller version to fit into plans for the food court. Perez is to appear before Rome’s Alcohol Control Commission for a beer and liquor pouring permit. The ACC meets again Monday, July 17.
Downtown dining: La Conquista will arrive soon after another new Mexican restaurant, LocoMex at 201 Broad St. Both join the original in town: El Zarape at 429 Broad St.
Speaking of the lofts: In a June interview with Hometown Headlines, Miniyar said the loft apartments at 114 Broad St. were just about ready. The building features eight apartments and five already had been leased. The units are managed by Hardy Realty. “There is a huge demand for apartments along Broad Street,” Miniyar said. “Before I purchased this building, I was talking to someone who told me there was a long waiting list of folks who wanted to live on Broad Street. This is a desired location and the place to be.”
