UTICA - Just over a week since a fire broke out at El Barajo Restaurant in Utica, the restaurant is set to reopen.
On Jan. 22, Utica fire crews responded to El Barajo Restaurant, located at 672 Bleecker St., causing a block of the street to be shut off to traffic. Smoke could be seen pouring out of the lower levels of the building.
The owners now tell us that the fire was electrical in nature. They say they’ll reopen the restaurant at noon on Friday, just in time for the lunch rush.
