Mexico comes to Sturbridge

The working press of the Sturbridge area gathered together to celebrate a new restaurant today. It’s been near 20 years since Western Central Massachusetts has had a Mexican restaurant in the region, but the drought is over. Playa del Carmen is here.

Jorge Guzman and his partner Carmen, have taken over the Rom’s building. The soft opening was yesterday and the parking lot was full. Word travels fast.

There will be Mariachi music from 5 p.m. to 9 on Sunday. We will have more about this here and in The Sturbridge Times Magazine. Keep watching and feast your eyes below on the Enchiladas de Mole and the Enchiladas Playa del Carmen.

It all went well with the cerveza, Pacifico Claro.

Thanks to Bob Datz of datzmedia who invited all the ink stained wretches. Also in attendance were Tracy Seelye and Chris Tanguay, managing editor and reporter respectively for the Southbridge evening news. Craig Semon of the T&G came. WESO station manager, Joe Mangiacotti, was also there. Joe is the host of Out With Joe dining show at 3 p.m. Sundays. No one ever had a better name for a show about food than Joe Mangiacotti.

Dick Vaughan stopped by and regaled us with his stories of life in the public sector. Always good for a quote and he did not disappoint today,

“Nobody has ever said a government knows how to run a government.”
