Manuel’s Creative Cuisine and Winston’s Supper Club to Open at the Centrum

Manuel’s Creative Cuisine, a new upscale Mexican restaurant centered on local organic ingredients, will open soon in the old Bengal Tiger Coast space at The Centrum. The restaurant is the work of Manuel and Virny Arredondo. They have two locations in Mexico.

Winston’s Supper Club is opening in the old Star Canyon space at the Centrum. According to a posting on Craig’s List, Winston’s is “a new concept, Euro-style lounge with the best dj’s, sound, and food.” They are hiring “Performers/Talent/Dancers (think pussy cat dolls, also live models).” Oh, and bartenders, porters, and bookkeepers.

  1. I really, really hate to hear this. These are two DEAD locations and it sounds like lots of very expensive installations. Good luck, but do not count on success. Probably will not happen. Did you do any market research at all to determine all that have failed?

    You are going to be different? I doubt it.

  2. “…think pussy cat dolls, also live models” Really? In the Gayboorhood? I second joeat. It will never last.

  3. Steel has survived – barely. Talk to the original owner – or the current struggling owner. A bad, dieing location is just that. Why add misery to death?

  4. A supper club with porters? What does that mean? They carry your drinks to your couch where you spend bucko dinero on bottle service no way Gaytown is sucking on that.

  6. The Centrum has been a tough spot for restaurants for years. He’s taking a huge risk with this location. Good luck Manuel.

  7. Who knows? Sometime it just takes a critical mass of good venues to get a location going. Maybe this combo will jumpstart the Centrum.
