WILMINGTON, MA — On Monday night, the Wilmington Board of Selectmen unanimously approved the request of Casa Blanca Mexican Restaurant to obtain an alcohol license for its new restaurant opening at 207 Main Street, inside the Wilmington Crossing plaza, in the former Chili’s location.
“Casa Blanca will be a great addition to the town,” said Attorney Nicholas Felici, representing the restaurant’s owner and founder, David Brambila. “Wilmington will benefit from authentic Mexican cooking and the way in which Mr. Brambila approaches the restaurant business.”
“Mr. Brambila and his family have successfully owned several restaurants in North of Boston and in Metrowest, doing business as Casa Blanca and Acapulcos,” added Felici. “They look forward to bringing a family-themed, Mexican style restaurant to the great town of Wilmington.”
In response from a question from Selectman Greg Bendel, Felici estimated that the restaurant would likely open in two months.
“We’re on course to open within a few weeks after ABCC (Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission) approval. My experience, lately, is it could be 4-6 weeks for that process to be completed. So, I’d say we’d expect to be open within probably two months,” said Felici, noting there will be no major renovation to the building, just some minor remodeling.
“Thank you for choosing Wilmington. We wish you great success,” responded Bendel. “A lot of people are excited about this.”
No members of the public chose to speak during the public hearing.
Following positive recommendations from the Police Department, Health Department, and Town Building Inspector, the Board of Selectmen unanimously granted the request.
