Good news via Mission Loc@l: the Planning Commission approved the plans for ~CERVECERÍA DE MATEVEZA~, the Argentine restaurant and (small) brewery that wants to open in the former Lilah Belle’s space at the corner of Church and 18th Street. To recap, the plan is to offer empanadas from El Porteño, and use the space as a test kitchen, brewing on a small 20-gallon copper system. Matt Coelho would be the “beer-tender,” with growlers and bottles available for purchase to go. Stand by for news on the opening date, etc. 3801 18th St. at Church.
