Chili Verde liquor license just one step away

Chili Verde, the Mexican restaurant that opened this summer at 3700 Tejon Street, has a lot of things going for it. It has a lovely space, friendly service, and a menu that's like a dream for anyone looking for a real taste of Southern Mexican and Pueblan cuisine. One thing it doesn't have? Liquor.

Actually, it does have a liquor license, finally. And it even has a bar all set and ready to go -- except for the booze. There's no liquor yet because the owners, brothers Eder and Hanzel Yanez-Mota, are still waiting for one last inspection before they're allowed to start pouring.

I just got off the phone with Eder, though, and he told me the inspector "should be coming in today." Provided that visit goes well, Chili Verde ought to start pouring, "tomorrow, maybe," he said. "Hopefully no later than Friday."

We'll drink to that.
