The Matador, a link in a Seattle-based Tex-Mex chain, is slated to open in August on a block of West 32nd Avenue that's changed a lot over the last year. The Matador is taking over the home of the first Heidi's Deli, which closed last November; just down the street, the original Commons Ground closed in April; a location of Ink! Coffee will take over that space. The changes don't please everyone.
More tequila-drunk hipsters roaming the neighborhood looking for their Car2Gos. Yay, us!
What do you think of what's happening along West 32nd Avenue? What restaurant would you like to see join the lineup?
