The Mableton Improvement Coalition (MIC) hosted a Grand Re-Opening Ribbon Cutting ceremony on November 10 to highlight the expansion of Sabores, a one-of-a-kind Puerto Rican fusion restaurant located at 185 Veterans Memorial Hwy SE in Mableton. Restaurant owners Oscar Muniz and Teresa Rodriguez were joined by MIC Board members Joel Cope, Twila Hawthorne, Ray Thomas and loyal customers of Sabores for the big event.
As part of MIC’s ongoing efforts to encourage a robust business community in Mableton, MIC provides ribbon cutting ceremonies for MIC sponsors. “A complete community is one with vibrant, successful local businesses that serve the needs of residents,” remarked Joel Cope, MIC’s President. “It’s great to see Chef Oscar and Teresa respond to the demand for restaurant options by growing their catering and take-out business into a full-service restaurant.”
“Sabores” means “flavors” in Spanish, and this restaurant reflects on the Puerto Rican heritage of its owners, who bring a wealth of cooking and restaurant experience from their native island – even including a monthly pig roast! “We’ve designed the décor to create a refreshing, laid-back “island feel” with aqua and wood accents that reflect the island culture,” said Chef Oscar. “All of our food is made from scratch and everything is fresh, so the menu changes according to seasonal availability.”
