Coming soon to High Street: arepas.
A new sign appeared Tuesday afternoon above the former location of ¡Ay! Salsa, a Latin restaurant at 25 High St. that closed its doors in late December. Workers have been on site over the past few days moving equipment into the shop, and signs in the windows read “Arepas!!!!! Coming soon.”
A Tuesday afternoon call to the number on the sign went unanswered, but when contacted at his food cart, Ernesto Garcia, the chef behind ¡Ay! Arepa, said the new restaurant would re-open after Spring Break.
In early January, A worker who was clearing out the former home of ¡Ay! Salsa said that the restaurant had left, and that another business would be taking its place, although he did not know what business that might be.
