Missing Mama Lucia’s? The long-awaited reopening for this beloved restaurant is planned for mid-March. Tavia Dillon, the restaurant’s general manager, says,“I want [customers] to know that we’re still Mama Lucia’s. We just moved and just brushing up the menu, just a tad bit.”
The restaurant, originally opened January 2, 2002, was located in Ashley Park for 13 years, but Leonard, owner and operator of Mama Lucia’s, didn’t love the restaurant’s being in a shopping center. When the lease was up, he felt it was time to move to another location where they could expand and truly make the place their own.
“It had to be renovated,” Tavia says, “but we lucked out with this because this is a great space.”
Customers can look forward to exciting changes at the new location, including an open, friendly bar and a whimsical patio with tulle and lights, a private room for gatherings, and even tables made out of pianos that have been cut in half. Expect the same menu, with a few additional items. “They can still get their favorites,” Tavia promises.
The owners love their customers, appreciate the community recognition, and are looking forward to the community’s reactions to the reopening in March. They want customers to enjoy the completely revamped Mama Lucia’s experience. Leonard and Tavia also want to give their appreciation to their hard-working and multi-talented staff members who have gone above and beyond during this transition.
The restaurant is currently hiring for all positions, especially experienced managers.
