Luigi’s was an Italian restaurant at 901 Crystal Falls Parkway at Bagdad near the Walgreen’s Pharmacy there. I loved Luigi’s!! BUT it is now only doing catering out of the Leander Beer Market by City Hall. Great variety in menu and everything I have had has been good. Luigi’s also has great pizza. I love the spinach, tomato, feta!!! Yum-m-m-m!! (512) 260-8787.

La Tapatia is doing the buildout for a new space by the Leander HEB Plus for a 2016 move in date.

I really hate that Selene’s Bistro closed several years back. That was a great Leander restaurant, just a bit ahead of its time. When Selene moved, I was invited to take her place on Leander Planning and Zoning and Selene’s became “The Great Wall” Chinese Restaurant.

Leander needs more restaurants – a seafood restaurant, health food restaurant, a VietNamese and or Asian restaurant…
