Zócalo to grow

Zócalo restaurant plans to expand its space for celebration by adding a banquet room.

The 1,000-square-foot banquet room will increase the L-shaped 3,500-square-foot dining area by nearly a third.

The room will contain pre-Columbian-style artwork and noise-reduction features including "big, beautiful doors" that can be closed and rugs that will make the new room quieter than an existing 500-square-foot banquet room, said restaurant owner Ernesto Jimenez.

"We get a lot of requests for groups — especially this time of year," he said. "It’s a good celebration place."

A bank has given verbal approval for a loan, but now paperwork must be completed, Jimenez said. The plan is to start work by May so the room will be completed in the summer.

The banquet room will be carved from space the restaurant uses for storage between Zócalo and the now-closed Dragonfly. Zócalo will not expand into Dragonfly’s space, Jimenez said.
