3 Angels Closing, Maximo's Opening


The owners of 3 Angels on Broad announced yesterday that they are closing the diner on Sunday, September 27th.

Amy and Julio Zuniga will open Maximo's on Broad on October 3rd or 7th. 

From the release: "Maximo's on Broad will feature a tapas menu and a more extensive wine list. The focus will be on gourmet, creative, fusion cuisine."

Amy Zuniga says they're aiming for a change in ambience.

The menu is still a work in progress. The tapas menu will probably have a Spanish influence. Zuniga has she's not sure which dishes, such as the Colossus, from 3 Angels menu will remain.

They've knocked out the ceiling to expose the beams. There is a new bar. 

Rebecca and Jason Severs of Bari opened 3 Angels in 2010. The angels are their sons. They wanted a place where kids and parents could eat happily together and where folks in the restaurant industry could get a bite to eat late-night. 

The Zunigas (Amy is Rebecca's sister) took over 3 Angels in 2014. 

Maximo's will offer lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch. The dining room is getting a facelift, according to the release. 

A grand opening is tentatively set for Friday, October 9th.
