A switch from macaroni to mariscos is on the way on the westside, with the lively, music-filled restaurant chain Culichi Town promising to be coming soon across from the Palace Station.
Debuting at the Fiesta Rancho in late 2017, Culichi Town’s Japanese and Mexican menu will replace the 7,140-square-foot Romano’s Macaroni Grill on Sahara Avenue, shuttered since last year.
Described as a “move,” and not an expansion, it is yet to be confirmed if the Fiesta Rancho site will continue to operate. The restaurant is known for its live banda and mariachi performances as well as Sinaloa, Mexico-inspired menu.
Fusing Japanese and Mexican flavors, the large menu features tostadas, chicharrones, seafood towers, a collection of creative sushi rolls, plus unusual cocktails and dishes, including the shrimp ceviche served with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
An estimated debut date or future opening hours have yet to be announced, but the Fiesta Rancho location is currently open daily for lunch and dinner.
