Coming: a taqueria, home goods, and ... a mystery

 

continued

Guillermo Lopez is planning to reopen the Stone School taqueria as El Ranchito. It will be his first restaurant, though not his first business--he's also a house painter. He didn't yet have the menu worked out in early July but mentioned steak ranchero at dinnertime and egg and potato burritos for breakfast.

Maureen Hawley is closing La Belle Maison at the end of July. "I've made a statement on Facebook. I don't really have much else to say. I'm just ready for something new," says Hawley, who opened the store on E. Stadium in 2005 and moved it to Main St. in 2008. The Facebook statement doesn't add much to that.

Hawley's heirloom-quality cool white linens, understated crockery, and baby clothes will soon be replaced by Lisa Roberts' new home store, Bed & Butter. Roberts, who owns Rock Paper Scissors down the street, emails that she hopes to be open at the end of August: "With the closing of Ann Arbor institutions such as John Leidy, Selo Shevel and La Belle Maison, we are excited about continuing the tradition of providing our community with a local place to find great home goods and gifts!"
