Look for Cilantro Fusion to leaf in August

Juan's on Stout, a downtown Mexican joint that shared the same address at 1531 Stout Street as Mici's Handcrafted Italian, has closed -- but the space won't be empty long. Cilanto Fusion, another south-of-the-border newcomer (La Brisa opened just last week at  375 South Pearl Street), is picking up where Juan's left off, and while a sign on the door promises "delicious Mexican cuisine, outstanding margaritas, fresh fruit mojitos, martinis and much more," a second note makes it clear that Juan's previous regulars won't be forgotten: "Special note to Juan's customers: We will keep Juan's green chili."

Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until mid-August to get your fix, because that's when Cilantro Fusion is slated to open.
