Poco's is coming back...as a buffet!

​Last March, Fat City reported -- somewhat mournfully -- about the last breakfast served at Poco's on the Boulevard, the beloved cafe at 3063 Southwest Boulevard. The dream restaurant of Lorenza "Poco" Gutierrez (who had been the celebrity chef at the Broadway Grille and, later Poco's Latin American Grill), who served breakfast, lunch and dinner -- terrific dinners! -- at her namesake restaurant, a former Waid's diner.

Well, as soon as the city's health inspectors sign off on everything, Gutierrez is re-opening the restaurant, but as a buffet featuring both Mexican and American specialties.

"This won't be a typical buffet," said Gutierrez, "it will be very, very different."

Poco plans to change the items on the buffet frequently, but intends to serve many of her signature dishes, including salmon, carne asada, and bisteca a la Mexicano. She hopes to be open later this week.
