After won conditional approval from Bedford planners this week, a proposed Bedford Village restaurant, a successor to , has just started the regulatory rounds.
In Bedford Village, where Vasco Cabral has been a fixture at for 30 years and its owner for the past 12, change is making its way through the planning process.
Connecticut restaurateur Nancy Roper is buying the property and planning to install her own take on quality Southwestern fare, based on locally available ingredients.
Now a resident of New Canaan, Roper calls on her Albuquerque roots to prepare a New Mexico-casual cuisine—including enchiladas, burritos and margaritas—served up family-style for lunch and dinner.
Roper, who still faces a date with the zoning board of appeals, will host Bedford planners when they make a site visit in late September. She must still compile figures on water usage and present specific plans for a patio expansion and exterior lighting.
