A Quick Switch on Washtenaw
Maiz Cantina becomes Los Amigos Fiesta
by Sally Mitani
From the April, 2014 issue
On Monday, March 3, Maiz Cantina on Washtenaw closed. On Tuesday, March 4, the location reopened as Los Amigos Fiesta. "It was take it or leave it," says manager David Corona. They didn't want to lose any of Maiz's customers, and it was an easy changeover: new owner Juan Hernandez already was running Los Amigos in Briarwood and Don Juan on West Stadium. Corona also manages Los Amigos and Don Juan, which have identical menus. Now Los Amigos Fiesta does, too.
Corona says Jason Branham, who owned Maiz, plans to reopen in Ypsi's Depot Town, but doesn't know when.
Los Amigos Fiesta, 4855 Washtenaw, 434-5554. Sun.-Thurs. 11 a.m.-10 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 11 a.m.-11 p.m. losamigosmexrest.com
