Mulata, the forthcoming restaurant from the owner of the former Taste of Brazil restaurant, is poised to open and now will have alcohol to serve.

The Oak Park Board of Trustees approved the liquor license for the new restaurant planned for 136 N. Oak Park Ave.

Owner Christiane Pereira told trustees that she aims to open the restaurant at the beginning of October.

"We've had a few opening dates," she joked with the board, noting the work she's done with architects and subcontractors over the last several months.

"It's been a lot of work, but we're about to wrap it up," she said.

Pereira told Wednesday Journal in May that the restaurant will have some of the same dishes found at Taste of Brazil, but will feature coffee, sandwiches, baked empanadas and Brazilian-style pies.
