A month after scandal over a bloody deer carcass in the kitchen forced a Greencastle restaurant to close its doors, a new one is slated to open in its place.
California-based Casa Grande has chosen the site of the former LaCharreada Mexican restaurant, in the Shoppes of Greencastle retail center, for its newest location, according to Cheryl May, office manager of the Hendricks County-based company that owns the shopping center.
May said Casa Grande officials recently signed the lease for the property and hope to have the new restaurant open and offering the usual Mexican-style cuisine by the end of January. Casa Grande is not affiliated with LaCharreada, she said.
Jose Sevilla, with Casa Grande's Linton, Ind. location, told the BannerGraphic Monday that he is planning a trip to the Greencastle restaurant later this week.
As for LaCharreada, the BannerGraphic reported in a Dec. 5 story that company officials have no plans to reopen in Greencastle. They closed their doors Dec. 2, a short time after news of the deer carcass incident broke, citing a 65- to 70-percent drop in sales.
