We caught with Mariya, co-owner of Brookland hotspot Menomale and learned great news! They got the go-ahead to start building an enclosure for their existing outdoor patio. At this point, they aren’t sure how they are going to go about it. For now, they are shopping around for estimates, or maybe Ettore, her husband, will try his hand at building it himself. Either way, we are very excited for them – and for us! With the sometimes long waits for table it will be nice to have an enclosed waiting/dining area outside.It might be a while before the build out is complete, and she asked for customers’ patience during the construction. Mariya said that since they are still deciding on the design, they can’t guess on a completion date, but that it will be before it gets too cold. Congrats on your continued success, Menomale! We can’t wait to dine on your new patio when it is complete.
