Birmingham Business Journal: New Mexican restaurant coming to Liberty Park

Two part-owners of the restaurant Mexico Lindo have leased space for a new eatery in the Prominence Shoppes at Liberty Park.

Gabriella Gallegos said she and husbandRobert Medina will open the Mexican-style restaurant La Taberna by Sept. 5 in the Vestavia retail center’s 3,100-square-foot space, which formerly housed La Dama.

The space, which has remained empty since the Italian bistro closed earlier this year, is owned by Thompson Tractor Co. Inc. President Michael Thompson and his family, according to public records.

Dan Anderson of Engel Realty Co. LLC represented the landlord in the five-year lease. He declined to disclose the rent.

The Prominence has also recently renewed leases with tenants Liberty Park Othodontics and Liberty Cleaners, said Anderson, who represented the landlord in the renewals.
