Pecado Bueno Wants You To ‘Sin Well’

September 26th, 2011 by Sean Keeley

It was just weeks ago that Italian restaurant Rialto moved out of its long-time spot at 4307 Fremont Ave N. And almost as soon as they were out, work began for the new tenant.

That would be Pecado Bueno, which plans on opening sometime very soon (Fall 2011). According to their placeholder website, they’re not just here to serve food. They’re here to redefine the entire battle of Good vs. Evil (kinda)…

Sin, was it worth it? Can food be worth the wrath of god, Eve felt so, and haven’t we all tasted something that just might be worth a little wrath of god?

Organic, local, free range, no hormones & sustainably harvested products into the best tacos, burritos, enchilada etc. The best tasting items with the right ingredients cooked simply and correctly. Not to mention a Tequila bar…

Want to get a sneak peak (or sneak taste, as it were) of what Pecano Bueno is all about? The restaurant is hosting The Fremont Abbey Arts Center for a pre-grand opening party and benefit:

Our new neighbors across the street, Pecado Bueno, are throwing us a pre-grand opening dinner party full of delicious organic & natural Mexican food, drinks, and you! Apparently even beer and margaritas are included and the food is sustainable and hormone free. Bring your friends and your appetite.

RSVP here if you’re interested in attending. The event is 6-9pm, suggested donations are $10-15 and all proceeds go to help Fremont Abbey.

Rialto Pasta Bar & Grill Closes Its Doors

August 15th, 2011 by Sean Keeley

Stop by Rialto ( 4307 Fremont Ave N) and you’ll be greeted by a sign on the door that says, unfortunately, that the Italian restaurant that’s been in Fremont since 2008 has closed.

No official word yet on why the restaurant has closed, though the sign does encourage folks to keep an eye on their website, which could mean there is a future for Rialto and owner Rudy La Valle.

Rialto began ten years before moving to Fremont, originally at 1400 N. 80th St., before taking over the space that previously housed Fremont Classic.

We’ll see if we can find out why exactly Rialto closed but in the meantime, pour some out for the pasta grill.
