The long-awaited opening of the comfort food eatery, El*Ay*Si is finally here, as the restaurant will open this Thursday, December 3rd at 6:00 p.m.  They've posted the menu on Facebook and I'm also including it here for your convenience.  As you'll notice, since the tastings they held back in October, some items have remained and others have changed.  Prices are reasonable and the selection is plentiful but not overwhelming.
