Bite Me!

Not much to report on what appears now to be the former Blue Seas. According to my sources it is indeed changing hands and will be called One Vallarta Resort and Spa.

The restaurant has been renamed Bite Me! and is being operated by two people who used to own Mama Dolores, Grant Hunermund and Kieran Justason.

Apparently the place still closes at 6:00 P.M., and they have a happy hour from 4:00 P.M. until 6:00 P.M.

The restaurant opens at 8:00 A.M. for breakfast and some of their menu items include a New Orleans style Shrimp Po' Boy sandwich, a Monte Cristo sandwich, a Ceasar salad topped with deep-fried calamari, and a trio of sliders (beef, chicken, and shrimp). Also a desert menu that includes frozen fudge brownies and key lime torts.

Friday, May 1st, they had Los Bambinos performing (no cover, just drinks) and the promise to have more events in the future.

I am still not sure what is happening at the resort itself or if Ken Molinaro is still involved. I don't even know if the same staff is there. I certainly hope so, because I always thought they did a very good job. I am talking about the front desk, security, maintenance, and maid service.

I do know that they have a whole new crew of time-share sales people on the premises, so we shall just have to wait to see how that all turns out.

I will keep you posted if I hear anything more, and if anyone reading this hears anything, be sure to either post a comment or send me an email.
