¡Ole! for Wayne

Two restaurant projects have Latin elements.

¡Ole! for Wayne


Downtown Wayne is getting two restaurant projects with Latin elements.

One, on the books for months and wending its way through approvals, will be a casually upscale Spanish-Mexican hybrid called Matador. Address: 110 N. Wayne Ave., in the space that has seen such joints as The Freehouse and Mims Food + Drink. It's from the team behind Crazy Cactus/La Taverna in Phoenixville, which promises a well-stocked tequila bar and wine selection. There's no opening date being bandied about.

As for the second, right across the street in the former office at 103 N. Wayne Ave.: Plans are unfolding for an upscale Mexican restaurant-lounge called Xilantro (as in cilantro with an X) from the crew behind the critically praised El Serape in Blue Bell and Los Serapes in Chalfont and Horsham. It's penciling in a September opening.
