Salvadoran Restaurant to Take Benny’s Spot

A Salvadoran restaurant will move in to the spot formerly occupied by Benny’s Chinese restaurant just outside Hyattsville’s Arts District.

Las Comadres will serve dishes from El Salvador as well as Tex-Mex and American food such as hamburgers and salmon.

Loosely translated as “the godmothers,” the women-owned restaurant aims to be a casual, family dining place serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner and will be open until late.

Renovations are underway at the restaurant on the corner of Route 1 and Madison Street in Riverdale Park. Owners Sara Reyes and Claudia Cubyas said they are currently planning to open sometime in August, once the interior work is completed.

Given the success of El Comalito just north of the restaurant, Cafe Azul – Caracas de Ayer just south of it, and the large Central American population in the area, Las Comadres should do pretty well.
