Second Street Pizza Owners Reviving Latin Fusion Restaurant in Whitefish – Flathead Beacon – November 25, 2015
The owners of Second Street Pizza are bringing back an old favorite to downtown Whitefish with their revival of Mama Blanca’s, a popular restaurant featuring traditional Puerto Rican and Cuban fare with a blue-collar flair.
Owners Dave and Susan Sheeran operated the Latin-fusion eatery for 18 months at 306 E. Second St. before converting the space into the popular downtown pizzeria Second Street Pizza, a move they made eight years ago during the recession.
But Mama Blanca’s has found renewed purchase in Whitefish’s downtown center, and the Sheerans hope to open their doors Nov. 30 inside the Remington Bar and Casino at 130 Central Ave. They’ll take over the space left vacant by La Hacienda and, more recently, the short-lived Shooter’s.
