Elsa’s South Restaurant & Cantina is undergoing an update of its kitchen that will greatly limit the menu the rest of this week and the start of next week, one of its co-owners said.

The restaurant at 6318 Far Hills Ave. in Centerville is closed today, Monday March 11. The restaurant’s bar and cantina are scheduled to open at 3 p.m. tomorrow, Tuesday March 12, but no kitchen service will be available. Items such as popcorn and perhaps chips and salsa will be available, according to Jason Hemmert, Elsa’s co-owner.

The kitchen will be closed for about a week, Hemmert said, as workers replace the floor in the kitchen and repair kitchen walls. 

“We hope to have the kitchen open early next week, like March 19 or 20, and be back at full service,” Hemmert said.
