Mexican restaurant coming to downtown Chelsea

This week's Ann Arbor News reported that Ypsilanti's La Fuente Mexican restaurant will be coming soon to Chelsea. It will be located in the Clocktower Complex, not too far from the TreeHouse and the Chelsea Teddy Bear Factory.

Here are links to the news sources:
Clocktower gets new Mexican restaurant (Ann Arbor News, 5/13/07). Also of interest on that news page is that a new Whole Foods Market is opening in Ann Arbor, where the Mervyn's used to be.

High time for Chelsea clocktower area Mexican restaurant becomes latest tenant (Ann Arbor News, 5/8/07)

And a restaurant review from earlier this spring:
La Fuente delicious, plentiful (Ann Arbor News, 3/22/07)

Looking forward to it!

Anybody heard an update on the timing of their move?

I spoke with some people 'in the know' today to see if they had any information on the new restaurant. The answer really comes down to no one is really sure. The hope is that they will be open by the end of the year. That would be great, wouldn't it? Although I sure go for for a margarita right about now.... ;-)

La Fuente is coming to Chelsea!!!..... I couldn't believe it. I watched the Ypsi location open, which took some time, & often had lunch there once & twice a week. I changed jobs & don't get there often.

I cant wait for the chips & salsa, chile rellenos, cheese encha......

UPDATE
In the December 20, 2007 edition of the Chelsea Standard, it was reported that Las Fuentes Mexican restaurant had been approved for their Class C on-premises liquor license. Hopefully that is a good sign that they will be opening soon now.

I've been craving a margarita since May now. Hurry up, you guys! ;-)

Oops, correction: It is La Fuente (not Las Fuentes). I might have to go to Ypsilanti and check out their other location to get a sneak peak!
