Storefront Report: Owners of new Highland Park restaurant remain shy

The residents of the Garvanza section of Highland Park are playing a guessing game over  what looks like a new restaurant in the works at 519 Avenue 64 near Repton Street.  Neighbors have noticed that a rooftop sign for  “Garvanza’s Comida Por La Vida” – has replaced signage for Timbo’s, a Mexican restaurant that kept erratic hours, according to postings on Yelp.  The windows to Timbo’s are now papered over, and one person working inside told The Eastsider a restaurant would be opening soon but provided no more details.

Meanwhile,  a posting on the Garvanza Improvement Association’s Facebook page said the owner lives in Garvanza and is planning to open the second week in December with a  menu featuring “Latin eclectic mix of foods from all regions.”

  1. Arghhhhh!!! The suspense is killing me. I’ve lived around corner from this place for almost 4 years and have been waiting waiting waiting for this place to open! (Yes, they’ve been working on it for that long.)

  2. No one will miss Timbo’s…

  3. I live 3 minutes away and have been curious about this place as well. Timbo’s was a joke, really…never kept regular hours and the food was mediocre. Excited for what could (hopefully!) be a good addition to the area. Keep us posted!


  5. Looks like they have a website now – http://garvanzas.com/

    Looks like a mailing list to announce the opening.
