So much for the giant lines and parties in the parking lot of Casa Bonita… New plans for the reopening have been revealed, and it’s goin g to be way more organized than we thought…

In public records obtained by FOX31, the Lakewood Police Department outlined the three phases of Casa Bonita’s opening.

PHASE 1 – Soft Opening

According to LPD, the first step will be multiple soft openings.

Those openings will happen at specific times and days of the week and will be open to those who were selected in the lottery. The lucky few will have a chance to attend dinner at Casa Bonita with five family members.

You can sign up for the lottery through Casa Bonita’s website.

PHASE 2 – Limited Capacity Tickets

Once the soft openings are done, the restaurant will open to the public in a limited capacity.

LPD said around 500 guests will be allowed in through a ticketing system. This limited opening will happen for three days. LPD said this limited occupancy should help avoid the “wait in line” Facebook group that gained momentum by pitching the idea of claiming a spot by waiting outside the restaurant.

PHASE 3 – Full Opening

Eventually, Casa Bonita will open for dinner from Monday through Saturday, and later transition to seven days a week for nighttime only.

From there, the restaurant will transition to being open all day on weekends.

After running six to eight weeks on this trial schedule, Casa Bonita will finally be open seven days a week all day.

The restaurant is also taking “booking requests” for large groups planning to visit the restaurant between August and October. The restaurant notably avoids calling them reservations. Requests must be made 14 days in advance and a signed agreement with a deposit must be completed in advance.
