Castilla, a new Spanish restaurant and tapas bar, is planned to open within The Lodge at Bellevue Square. The restaurant is taking over space at Bellevue Square that Vivo 53 previously occupied before closing in July.
The restaurant owners are a husband and wife team, chef Clara Gutierrez Carroll and her husband, John. Mrs Carroll has been a chef for almost 20 years.
Castilla is being positioned as “approachable fine dining” according to a representative for the company. They are currently redecorating the restaurant and are planned to open in October within The Lodge at Bellevue Square.
Since 2013, Boom Noodle, Kaisho, and Vivo 53 have all closed in the space that Castilla plans to occupy within The Lodge at Bellevue Square. Next door to the space Blue C Sushi closed earlier this year currently does not have a tenant.
