I just checked in with Brian Marsters, the Director of Operations of Matt’s Rancho Martinez. Marsters didn’t go into too many details but said the long-awaited opening of the restaurant in Lakewood is now scheduled for “September 11thish.” Matt’s has certainly had a wretched six months filled with delays from permits, parking, neighborhood associations, and landlords.
The recent delay was caused by the back up of fire inspections due to the upcoming holiday weekend. They still have to pour part of the sidewalk and the patio wall but are eagerly waiting to get chiles rellenos to the tables on September 11thish. I love that.
