Yes, it’s March. So that means Fernando Martinez has more restaurants in the works

The indefatigable Martinez family–Fernando, Christina and Yaniel–have announced plans to open two more restaurants. Artesano Tapas y Vino will be in the Westport Village location briefly occupied by A.P. Crafters, which closed in 2013. The second will be a downtown iteration of Mussel & Burger Bar.

The downtown M&BB, which might take some of the pressure off the always full restaurant on Taylorsville Rd., will be along Whiskey Row on W. Main St. Neither location has a definite opening date, but Martinez is firm in his commitment to both ideas in both locations.
