A restaurant is opening on 48th Avenue next month that will focus on selling Central Mexican sandwiches—known as cemitas.
The establishment, aptly named Cemita’s, is located at 45-14 48th Ave. and its owner aims for the restaurant to be a destination where local people can eat and hang out for a drink.
Danny Lyu, a Los Angeles native who is the proprietor of the business, said that there are many good eateries near his restaurant but there are a lack of places where people can go out for the evening.
Cemitas has a bar and offers wine and beer. The establishment isn’t able to sell liquor since it is located near several churches.
The restaurant has room for 32 customers, including several seats at the bar.
Lyu is still working on the menu as well as finalizing what beer he will have on tap.
The location was previously occupied by Esmeralda.
