ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Guava Tree Café has pulled up its University-area roots and is moving to Nob Hill.
The popular restaurant known for sandwiches and Latin American offerings should reopen near Central and Richmond next week, owners say.
The new site – 118 Richmond NE – offers about twice as much space as the restaurant’s original spot, ample parking and “just … a better location,” said Maricarmen Pijem, who owns Guava Tree with husband Diego Barbosa.
Guava Tree Café opened in the fall of 2010 at 216 Yale SE. It closed there last week.
Owners have spent the past six months readying the new place, which previously had been office space, Pijem said.
As part of the move, the owners plan to gradually expand into dinner hours, she said.
