New owner Victor M. Medina of the Dixie Girl Restaurant at 1789 Central Ave., has developed a new pub menu with weekly liquor specials. (See menu below)

Medina told the Los Alamos Daily Post this morning that the restaurant will be open late Friday and Saturday evening so people can treat their out of town guests to dinner and drinks.

“I also want to let the community know that we are going to start having entertainment and are looking for musicians, either solo or bands to play in the restaurant,” Medina said. “We are also starting a Sunday afternoon jam session, any musician is welcome.”

Medina and his wife Patricia purchased the Dixie Girl from Denise Lane earlier this month. Medina retired in 2005 from Los Alamos National Laboratory where he worked as a computer engineer.

“I’ve been a foodie all my life … I really enjoy cooking and do most of the cooking at home,” Medina said during an interview Nov. 8. “I always dreamed of owning my own restaurant or brewpub so when Denise offered this restaurant to me I couldn’t say no.”

Medina’s first big event at his new restaurant is a Thanksgiving Day buffet that will include all-you-can-eat prime rib, roast turkey and all the fixings at $37.50 for adults, $15 for teenagers and $7 for children under 12. Reservations are required and can be arranged by calling 505.662.1436.
