Don Chucho opens on Forest Ave


It’s been many years (actually nearly about the time we started adding menus to this directory) that this location which used to house Basille’s Restaurant was inhibited. It’s finally opened for business and the owners got big plans, the upstairs will turn into a bar & lounge area for late night parties, while the main dining room will remain an eatery, bakery and an ice cream shop.

    I went to check out the lunch buffet on a Monday and was told it wasn’t available. Apparently they only do it every other day. It would’ve been nice if they had mentioned that somewhere on their menu or website.
